As a maker of objects, baskets, and jewelry, I am drawn to the idea of inside outside-space, a place to hide and their shadows. I create forms that bring mystery to the visual and tactile senses. The surfaces interact, drawing the eye into a drama of shifting curves and textures. Volume, space, texture and color are built with copper, bronze, sterling silver and steel. Though the work may look spontaneous, it is carefully planned, for its function and to encourage visual and emotional exploration.
