From the Land of Kansas artist statement

 Marian Vavra


Based outside of Rose Hill, Kansas, Marian Vavra gathers and artistically works with wheat. Put straw in my hands and I am a happy person!  She creates traditional and contemporary straw art specializing in sacred religious symbols. Marian creates harvest symbols, love tokens, house blessings and more. She is available for commissioned artwork, group presentations and hands-on projects.

Marian gathers the first harvest of specially grown Turkey Red and Larned heirloom wheat varieties along with local wheat. From the fields she sundries, cleans and sorts the golden wheat to ready it for her use.
