My work invites people to embrace the small: to observe and appreciate the abundant natural forms that grow in the world all around us and might otherwise be overlooked. I also have an abiding interest in small containers and love the ways they can serve as both holders of precious things and deliberate points of focus.
Using natural materials that I have collected throughout my life in diverse landscapes, I compose and suspend my compositions in hand colored resin inside small containers made of sterling silver, steel, bronze, or wood. Some pieces are intended as reflections on form; some have more of a narrative quality, and all serve as part of an ever-evolving visual language inspired by what nature shares and shows.
As a professional artist for the past 25 years, I have shown my work extensively throughout the country. My work is held in numerous private collections.
