Artist Statement

The challenge for me is to create sculptures that will spark the psyche, soul, and spirit to breathe, sing, and celebrate – by experiencing great space…time and liberation.

The sculptures are themselves a dance of time and space – the appreciation of time as being allowed by space and in turn expressing space.  Hanging in space they move gently, almost imperceptibly, in the least currents of air.  They usually are constructed of paper pulp, metal rods and space, and exhibit geometric elements.  Although intuitively, spontaneously created, they are seamed with order and intent; energize and are energized by space.  They have evolved into a “space poetry” – a visual music of perpetuating rhythms, vibrating hues, harmony and balance.  Hopefully they echo the beauty, wonder and mystery of our common and not-so-common experience.
