Rachel's "R"

For Christmas (2011), I created a gift for my niece. I wanted to make something she could sit on her desk or hang on the wall. Taking inspiration from Brittney Lee's shadowbox art, I knew I wanted to do something with depth and "painterly". Two things I wanted it to involve was, [1] something to represent her and [2] something with her cat. As I was walking around in the craft shop and saw the foam R, it came to me.
