My need to tell stories through visual means is the driving force for my art. I work in a variety of medium, often combining several into one piece of art. I draw, paint, sculpt in clay, and make 3-D constructions. I use mainly recycled materials as rattan baskets, driftwood, thriftstore finds. I create site-specific ephermal work that I photograph. My latest work focuses on vitally important concerns: the migrant crisis and threats to our planet. My previous Stick Stories honor nature. Highlights of older paintings and ceramic sculptures may be seen in the Archives.
