ARTIST’S STATEMENT

Creativity is an integral part of my life’s philosophy. Each time I ventured into a specific artistic medium, I found myself building bridges from one discipline to another: painting with sculpting. Sculptures with poems; poetry with play writing; art with psychology; teaching with learning.

The philosophy has not changed, though the materials have. Assemblagé sculpture joins found objects that have lost their way; wood with rusted metal; wire with glass; common objects and delicate feathers mixed with re-bar. Two  themes run in the current work, the “La Femme” the women series, “La Musique” the music. I enjoy shifting and combining the utilitarian with the artistic.

I am a founding member Ashland Art Works. I thank the mentors, teachers and craftspeople who have graced my life and shared my vision
