Sculpture is one of my many passions. As a wife, mother, teacher and inveterate world traveler, I am grateful for how those experiences help shape my work. I love experimenting with different materials -e.g. - my early pieces evolved from bronze into thin lead forms treated with metal dyes and patinas. While I enjoyed working with metal, its lack of malleability was ultimately constricting. I found exactly what I was looking for when I switched to playing with clay. Its responsiveness makes anything seem possible and its textures give me a greater sense of being more directly connected to the Earth.
DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Although my sculptures spring from a contemporary reality, I've tried to create ancient-looking surfaces in an effort to define our timeless human connection to the Earth.
