As a child, I was more comfortable with animals than humans, so is seems inevitable that my artwork is based on the interconnectedness of human and animal kingdoms. Anthropomorphic 3-dimensional clay and cloth figures emerge from miniature environments to tell mute, sometimes whimsical tales. Often the atmosphere hints of mystery and foreboding. My sources are varied: historic, cultural, myth, folktales, current life experience. I have recently been focused on using these figures to extend beyond the stretched canvas base as well as into excavated spaces within the canvas.
