Artist’s Statement

Creating artful pieces brings me great happiness. My art is lyrical and mysterious. Its playfulness invites the viewer to engage and discover a story, offering moments of wonderment and curiosity.

The medium used is varied – metal, wood, glass, fabric, clay, feathers, bones, beads…I begin with a strong design and then fabricate using a technique suitable to mold the medium. Each layer of fabrication develops the personality of the piece until suddenly its presented and the piece is finished.

My studies, my travels, my life experiences are expressed through my work. This inquisitiveness of the world we live in is what I impart to the viewer of my art.
