within a 3 dimensional tapestry exist fine illuminated strands;
dancing, shimmering, pulsating, ever moving, and creating a loosely
woven tapestry from fibers of the ever-present past, present, and
future. In the unseen fabric that encompasses all movement,
relationship, and connection of these strands, resides the cradle of
my work and the source of my inspiration. The work that comes to me
and from me is a physical manifestation of this dance.
my focus is Mask Work and
Sculpture. My work begins with inspiration void of final expectation
and is complete when the inspiration is spoken. Working in this
open-ended manner affords my imagination the freedom to engage

work as I delve deeper to revealing the more obscure gems my

use a variety of media including several types of clay, bone, wood,
metal, shell, glass, and other organic and re-purposed materials in
creation of my work. I select materials for each piece according to
what manifestation calls
for. I encourage dialog
between materials to embrace and speak to the spirit of my
inspiration. I try to stay as natural as possible and research shops
I buy materials from as to the means used in obtaining and producing
their products. I incorporate found plant and animal matter in
my work with respect and gratitude to the provider.
