I am an urban dweller. It is a love/hate relationship. I am drawn to the innate sense of randomness, clutter and change that can define an urban existence. Yet I have the secret desire to redesign my world, reconfiguring this landscape in order to offer harmony and often explanation without denying any existing imperfections. By paring down basic elements of color, shape and movement is to acknowledge another kind of space. My encaustic and fiber sculptures reduce larger images and concepts into elegant simplified forms. Ultimately they become symbols of incompleteness that come together in works of art that are complete and whole.
