Title: Protected Dreams No 4 Peacock
Art Medium: Mixed Media: handmade papers, borosilicate glass “egg”, peacock feather, mounted on archival museum board
Dimensions: 9″ x 12″ x 1.5″
Description: Peacock symbolism has great importance – in your dreams it is typically good – foretelling success, luck, and a career that you have desired. It also represents longevity, spring, love, birth and new growth. Feathers in my wall-mounted nests emerged from the pandemic experience of isolating at home. They are “protected” as so many of us were – the feather representing a dream or future goal. It is a reminder of the importance of seeing that dream every day and protecting it – until it can “fly” again.

ABOUT THE ARTIST: As a Studio Art Major at Towson University, Tamsin majored in American Crafts: ceramics, fibers and textiles. For several years she was represented by Tomlinson Craft Collection in Baltimore before relocating to Washington DC. After teaching art K-8, she completed the MA Museum Education Program at George Washington University and became a museum educator in six different museums on the East Coast with collections in art, history, technology and natural history. Museums tell stories and identify meanings in objects. The same storytelling mindset carries over into the work she now creates – in reaction to travel, museum experiences or life in general. “I enjoy the problem-solving nature of creating art forms. I continue to work with cultural organizations and create art on a commission basis or to support museums, educational 501c3s and other community non-profits such as the Food Bank.”
