Ms. Smith lives in Mundelein, IL and works in Highland Park where she restores wooden
carousel animals for Lisa Parr of Old Parr's, Inc., one of only five major carousel
restorers in the country. Ms. Smith also paints furniture and draws from the figure. Here
Smith gives us an unorthodox presentation of a bed headboard and footboard. The
original pieces are transformed not only by paint and drawing, but also by the out-of-
context parallel presentation on the wall that creates a kind of altarpiece.
