Artist's Statement

My art has a mission: to delight and surprise.

The paper sculptures are informed by my intimate knowledge of flowers gained by working with fresh flowers for over 30 years. The moods and unique energy of fresh flowers are the sources of endless fascination and inspiration. The gesture of a petal, a hint of color, the direction of a shadow--the unpredictable way these elements play together make these pieces an adventure to construct and visually intoxicating to view, taking viewers to a place of joy, excitement and tranquility all at once.

The materials are common--paper, glue, paint, and pins--but I like to think that the way I use them gives a surprising and new way to look at common desk supplies.

This is where dreams are made; this is my Delightful Mission.
