About the Work
Shelter — fragile and vital.
Shelter need not be lavish or large.
It need not be pretty or pretentious.
’Tis not the structure of it that defines it,
but rather what it symbolizes.
A place of one’s own, a home, an abode,
Where life may unfold, magic take hold.
Shelter is not form – it is freedom.
Its essence is what it means to someone.
No matter how simple, symbolic, or small,
Shelter is deserved and desired by us all.
About the Artist
Kirstin Bedard has dabbled in drawing, pen and ink, and teensy tiny printing for many years. It is the often unnoticed beauties in life that capture by attention. It is the little things, the delicate details that she seeks. Working in black and white allows her to capture the depth and light of her subjects. Words also find their way into her pieces, representing emotions and the yearning to understand.
