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 ephemeral work that I photograph. My current work focuses on vitally urgent concerns: the pandemic, threats to our planet, the migrant crisis. My previous Stick Stories honor nature. Highlights of older paintings and ceramic sculptures may be seen in the Archives. Please click on the menu and drop downs to see the work.
