Artist Statement

I am intrigued with the visual change in three-dimensional design through one’s physical movement. I see my art as a miniature form of that experience. My compositions embody designs that could adorn a person, but I see them as an extension of play between a body and the piece. The movement within the piece, intending to entice the viewer or wearer into a spatial dialogue, is what equates it to wearable sculpture. The overall effect is to create a hint of whimsy within the critically composed piece of art. I love to share my experience as an artist with others. My proudest moments have been nurturing vibrant visual art-making in my students!
