Artist's Statement

A warm invitation to come enjoy my outdoor sculptures: clay, stone, metal; front yard Labyrinth; quiet reading nook behind my house; backyard ‘emerging’ Sanctuary Garden surrounded by woods, no visible neighbors, a stone bench to relax. This garden is certain to mature beautifully. My hope is that this emerging garden will inspire you.
Indoors: an abundance of media in my studio: what I call Emotional Realism. A life-long artist, I have a habit of reinventing myself: pen & ink, pastel, oil, Chinese brush, pyrography, unique gourd art and gourd/polymer clay Forest Delights series (Autumn/Spring). Nature is my inspiration. I’m incorporating tree bark, moss and lichen into my works; some with leaves cut from gourds, some with polymer clay leaves.
