Artist's Statement

I create abstract mixed media sculpture using up-cycled materials, vintage found objects, and household items.

My art has been an ongoing exploration of layering colors and shapes, the interaction of negative and positive space,  and the combining of 2- and 3- dimensional forms.  I strive for balance, simplicity and complexity, chaos and harmony.  I have been further led to experimentation with light, shadow, and movement.

Lately I have been fascinated by the possibilities of string: taut, loose, wound, woven, raw, or painted, and it's incorporation into the circular form.
