Resume & Artist Statement

'Blue Bird', Mixed Media Sculpture, 2003

Artist Statement
I love faces, landscapes, texture and color. When I look out my window, I see faces in the clouds, leaves on the trees, rocks and mountains. These visions shape and inspire my work in clay, window screening and paint.

I make masks, garden art, mixed media sculptures and functional pieces in clay, window screening and copper. Many of my mixed media sculptures also include my writing as well.
