Finer Things in Life. Growing up in a family where music played an important part of everyday life, I understand completely the power of music as portal. I chose to depict a violin as a tribute to my sister Kimmie, who was a wonderful classical violinist when she was young. The box is covered with found papers and acrylic washes, and I paired the violin with a hair comb, a couple of pieces of jewelry and handle to a Chinese jewelry box. 5.5" x 8" x 2" closed.
