Artist Statement

My art has a mission: to delight and surprise.

My paper sculptures are informed by my intimate knowledge of flowers gained by working with fresh flowers for over 30 years. 

Their moods and unique energy are the source of my 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 my pieces an adventure to construct and visually intoxicating to view. 

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.
