When Artists are asked to explain their work things seem
to get intellectualized. For me, my art is a record of
the direction of my thoughts at that time in my life.
I live in a remote area north of Cave Creek, Arizona
which is surrounded by pristine desert and it is nature that
also greatly influences my thoughts.
My Bird Sculptures are my
understandings of grace and beauty either in flight or in
the anticipation of flight. The larger Bird Sculptures
are mounted so they have a kinetic quality. I also
find myself drawn to wild flowers and create kinetic
sculptures in bright colors. My
"Nite Blooms" series are tall lamps in rusted metal.
paintings speak of humans and the human conditions.
These images reflect my attempt of understanding my own life
