As an artist I create paintings and sculpture that delve into the physical reality and beauty of color and the mysteries of life, all the while believing that dreams can supersede reality. I begin building my pieces with a sense of what I want the forms to convey. Are they pulling apart? Are they resisting each other? The forms talk to one another, moving in unison to express our oneness with nature; sometimes dissolving into it and then reemerging, not quite whole. Creating life size models in heavy paper enables me to study the balance and interaction of the sculptures before they are cut into steel and assembled. My wire, washer and wood sculptures exist because the forms are self supporting as they are assembled. Being a dancer, I have always been interested in the core of things; the bones, how forms hold together and are independent while being completely dependent upon one another. As a result, I see my pieces as a reinforcement of the possibilities of life; stable yet evolving structures, forms in suspension, concepts defined by line and space. This precarious and somewhat mysterious equilibrium is what fascinates me.
