By Tracy Wilkerson and Griffin Byron
Opening Reception 1/18/19 6-9PM
After more than twenty years in corporate America, with a double Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing and Business Administration from Indiana State University, Wilkerson began creating of one of a kind greeting cards. With repeated visits to the landfill for discarded items, she kept coming up with creative ways of using unusual objects. Wilkerson states that the materials inspire her to create, sometimes moving and growing as other items are discovered. Focused in the Del Ray community of Northern Virginia, her work has been called high-concept, minimalist and one-of-a-kind. She just calls it fun.
