I have felt the fragility of life and the world around us over the past few years. Many things have seemed to be precariously held together or just falling apart. I used abstracted images of steps and ladders as a visual metaphor for this state. The cast shadows are important to this piece as they shift, change and sometimes disappear. This is a wall sculpture.

Fragments of memories, or words that resonate and stay within my mind converge with observations of the physical world during the course of my creative process. My work is intimate in both scale and intention. They synthesis of organic forms with the influence of architectural elements create structures that are feminine, yet visually strong. Interior spaces and being drawn visually and conceptually into the heart of a form is intriguing to me. I intend to subtly suggest images that might evoke a feeling of discovery, memory, or contemplation in the observer.
