Making things has been the greatest pleasure and source of satisfaction in my life. I have engaged with a number of different materials, but my first serious work was with clay, making pottery for several years and then figurative sculpture. In the 90’s I took up painting, and that came to be my primary art form.
The desire to work in three dimensions again led me.to make small shelters or houses and to experiment with various materials such as corrugated cardboard, lace, wire, and found items and from these fragile, often discarded materials, to make enclosed, safe-feeling places. These structures may be sanctuary, storeroom, safe house, or altar. They satisfy something in me that loves the intimacy and magic of big things made very small.
Working with found objects seemed to lead naturally to putting them together to make sculptures. I have always enjoyed stories about time machines and UFOs. Since they seem to be objects that exist only in imagination–-so far, anyway--there is complete freedom to play with the forms.
I am grateful that my life has allowed me to work so pleasurably with form and color.
