Artist and author Petra van Cronenburg tells stories in paper, beads and strings, choosing materials that combine both sustainability and the luxury of traditional craftsmanship. The paper beads and art originate from “garbage”… old and damaged books, newspapers, magazines and packaging, and she sources non-toxic paint materials, natural materials and other found objects. We spoke about her process and the impact color has on her work.
No matter what you call them, be it french fries, frites, chips, deep fried potatoes, or what size or shape they come in, from shoestring to thick-cut, waffle to crinkle style, no one can deny that fries have become a food favorite across the world.

The first time I learned about the Munsell Color System was from a 2D color wheel presented in artist Harley Brown’s instructional book.
