My work emerges as I allow my visual fantasies and stories to come alive. I seek to honor all things in this world around me and to become a part of it all. The stories seem to tell themselves with many archetypical and ancient images. Skulls and bones used in my sculptures are all found in the woods. By making them a major part of each piece I experience the natural world of life and death and the essence of CONTINUANCE.
My ceremonial neckpieces are designed with unique and rare ancient, antique and vintage beads and fetishes from all over the world, especially Africa, the Middle East, China and Tibet.
Adornment of men and women in ancient ritual and ceremony mirror my own concepts of honoring the body with ornamentation.
