“Throughout my life, I have been a keen observer of relationships and those observations have influenced my work. Using burlap, bronze, aluminum, copper, and now wood, I create an emotional stage for the natural twists and sensual curves in the material. Over my career, my works have ranged from small, intimate indoor pieces to giant aluminum and bronze installations, to water sculptures. When you look at my “bags,” you can see them talk to each other—about love, about distance, about fear and tenderness. Each has its own message and uniqueness, like the differences that exist in the humans who view them. Looking at my highly polished wall relief pieces, you can feel the sculptural movement—literally and figuratively.
