The point of departure for my work begins with substrates of clay, mixed media or discarded books. My sculptures employ recycled and re-purposed materials to each piece. It is this use of traditional and nontraditional materials that defines my creative process. An incalculable number of associations and combinations can be derived from a collection of metals, glass, bones, china, beads, wood, leather and other treasures. Inspiration leads to a coming together of an idea and materials that visually chronicle that idea.
