Many folks don’t realize that our Cheese Queen is an artist (see previous article).
She has worked with all kinds of media, but in the last few years, she has been making mosaics from stones, glass beads, jewelry, pieces of mirror and mardi gras beads.
This winter, she has been holed up in her basement for days at a time, creating a masterpiece in a newly installed bathroom.
It’s difficult to discern from the pictures exactly what is what, but basically, the entire room and shower is covered with Ricki’s fabulous designs (and, it isn’t done yet!) She applied everything with a hot glue gun.
The room is not quite finished, but several members of our staff visited the scene after having a pre-wedding celebration for Jeri (who was wed later that week on Valentine’s Day in Las Vegas). We were in a party kind of mood, so that explains some of these pictures!
