“Summer Reflections” is a collection of glass canning jars; fruits, vegetables, flowers and found objects that bring back secure thoughts of having plenty- food, safe environments and the love of family and friends. I had the luxury of growing up in the South where there was always an abundance of home grown produce in the summer.  The items not only show a realistic interpretation but a symbolic one as well.  Although I grew up in a middle class, Norman Rockwell type family, I have learned that my greatest wealth is actually in the many blessings and abundance of love that was shared through the art of friend’s gardens and gifts.” -Mary Jean Davis
“My most recent body of work is relatively documentary in nature.  These images reflect a personal affinity for the eccentricities and unusual nature of my home state.  Images in this collection span
Louisiana from the White Lightening Road in the northeast, to the French Quarter in New Orleans, to the small town of Lecompte in Central Louisiana, to the historic Highland Neighborhood in Shreveport.  Tourists come from around the world to experience Louisiana culture; I hope I have represented it well in this collection.” -Debbie Engle
