Making things has been the greatest pleasure and source of satisfaction in my life. I have engaged with a number of different materials, but my first serious work was with clay: pottery, then porcelain figurative sculpture. In the 90’s I took up painting on paper and canvas. I like making marks in a variety of ways: staining, transfer, stencil—to create an atmosphere and a sense of space. The desire to make three dimensional objects again led me to experiment with various materials such as corrugated cardboard, lace, and other found items to make little houses, and later, time machines, little characters, and wire towers. I am grateful that my life has allowed me to work so pleasurably with form and color.
