Working often times in an unconventional manner, I am an artist that uses a variety of materials to create non-functional sculptural objects that often echo a direct conection between the natural world and to my life's experiences. Process is the key word in the making of my art. Whether it is the frequent motions of twining, felting, stitching, punching holes, or tying knots, a sense of centeredness is created by such repetitious work. In fact, many times these periods become quite meditative - a wholesome break from the busy urban life of Los Angeles, for while I humanize the material, it naturalizes me.
