Rebecca's Ward

Lately, I've been brainstorming for a summer window display project, and all that comes to mind is COLOR. Leave the hanging beach balls and papier mache giant fish behind this year; I can only think of vibrant rainbow colors for the world to enjoy!

One of my main inspirations for this theme of color comes from Rebecca Ward, a tape installation artist. I think I've mentioned many times how I'm inspired by the simplest of objects used in massive amounts to create a work of art. Rebecca Ward does exactly that with colored tape -- she makes what we could never believe was possible with such a simple, everyday object.

Here are some examples of her work so you too can be inspired!

Back to work now!
