Marcia’s Magical Micro Miniature Creations Birth from Fire Raging Devastation
As a macro destroyer, when fire hits its destructive power can wipe out incredible expanses in minutes. This happened to Marcia Cronk-Teha. One night in a flash they lost their home, (you can read more about Marcia). Instead of being consumed with ruminating about the loss of all her possessions, she decided to redirect her emotions and creativity to embracing and birthing these enchanting miniature fairy worlds. These fairy scenes are a manifestation of love and rebirth as she courageously chooses to take a leave from teaching to pursue her love of visual arts and miniatures. Each one-of-a-kind art piece includes wood from the remains of the house fire, recycled jewellery and household treasures, plus collected treasures from the forests and beaches of Vancouver Island. Marcia is hypnotically drawing us in to appreciate nature’s beauty and the metamorphic magic in repurposing even the tiniest bits. Marcia inspires me to look beyond what something once was and see what it can become, no matter how micro!
Walking sandy beaches, listening to soothing surf grounds and refreshes perspectives. Equally, taking the time to embrace the creativity and story of others stimulates shifts in our meta-cognition, allowing for epiphanies to surface.
