Words from the Artist
This body of work begins with a need to express emotions. The pieces from the Clouds Series and the Lilly ring arise from conversations with my father who has dementia. Abstracted shapes I have chosen to work with relate directly to his diminishing language. During our walks together, the clouds and the pond become a simple way to connect in our shared love of nature.
Other pieces reflect my attraction to simple shapes reduced from the natural world as expressed in mid-century modernism.
