Local artist Christy Puetz deals in beads. Her delicate and painstakingly detailed creatures come from a variety of backgrounds and stories.
In 2011, she created a collection of "shapeshifting" creatures at Modified Arts, and, in 2009, she showcased a series of birds with beaded patterns inspired by the microscopic appearances of diseases.
Each work is born primarily of glass seed bead work and peyote stitches, and together they create a storyline created in the artist's mind.

Puetz will work and interact with the public in the Gallery@theLibrary (located inside Scottsdale Civic Center Library), where she'll host workshop and continue to create a new species for her exhibition "Monsters and Squirrels," on view.
