Observation and analysis are my obsession. Nature is my respite. My art is informed by primitive facets of form and content. I combine natural materials with abstract interpretations of life, the earth underfoot and scientific principles and theory as metaphors for experiences and insights into interpersonal, spiritual, and environmental relationships, sexuality, femininity, maturity and reproduction. I work in clay, metal and materials obtained or grown by me. My pieces are part commentary and part catharsis.
