Brenda and Ken Spence and Mary-Pat Forrest
Brenda and Ken inherited the honor of creating the chair from Mary-Pat, who got lost in the wilds of Scotland. Minnesotans Ken and Brenda spend a good part of every year helping other people; they have made over a dozen trips to Hancock County to help us rebuild after Katrina. They chose to transform their chair into an unusual plant stand. The lush foliage growing from the seat of the chair reminds us of the continuing revitalization of the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
Mary-Pat Forrest is an artist from Biloxi who can often be seen in the Bay St. Louis area. Her work may be seen at mary-patforrest.blogspot.com.
