Through art our deepest selves and our relationship to the world is revealed. I use art to explore my life, my memories and everything around me. It is how I make sense of current events, of changing times and of experiences from my earliest moments onwards. It is how I share who I am, what I see and how I see.
My favorite medium to work with is beads. I use the properties inherent to beads, (surface, finish and shape) to explore my world, a world full of dimension, light, color, texture and movement.
Each bead is placed one-by-one, a zen-like meditation on the path to completion. 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 myself and the materials I use, and how they can best be combined.
