ARTIST STATEMENT

I am attracted to texture, materials and luminosity.  I interconnect shapes and units to form a larger whole and combine fragments of thoughts theat have interrelationships.  The recurrent themes of wholeness and natural change thread through the work.

My personal expressions evolves from the desire to explore.  My techniques cross centuries, landscapes, and cultures.

Handmade paper is combined with fused glass. Over beaten fibers are used with natural coloration and watermarked with patterns.  Other finers are sometimes embossed and submerged in vibrant color, creating a beautiful contrast of organic material with the solidity of glass.
