Statement:

I use the properties inherent to beads, (surface, finish and shape) and the sculptural attributes of epoxy-like modelling clay to explore dimensions, light, color, texture and movement. My goal is to allow us to see life and nature in new and extraordinary ways.

I place each bead one-by-one to create a composition that contains both real and imagined elements. The process I use is permanent and allows no corrections. Thus I give myself permission to treat each and every piece as an experiment; an exploration of the materials I use and how they can best be combined.
