I just can’t help it. I must make things. My mind won’t stop and my fingers follow.
One of the things I find most enjoyable about being an artist is the reaction I get when someone else enjoys my work. It is a special thing to be able to share a piece of yourself. And, of course, it’s nice for the ego as well. Who doesn’t like being told they’re terrific once in a while.
As with many artists, I enjoy creating in more than one media, but sculpting suits me best.
I have chosen to work primarily in mixed media, embellishing polymer clay with gems, pearls, beads and found objects which are worked into the sculpture while the clay is uncured. I feel this allows for a very organic design. It’s also very interesting joining forces with nature to create something memorable.
