Art that makes you smile

Irony and whimsy dominate my art.

Resurfacing found objects with tiny glass beads is a way for me to express dichotomies like inner meaning versus outer meaning, facade versus core, child play versus grown-up despair.

The objects are chosen for their relationship to our present culture and their sculptural interest, positive and negative spatial relationships, and scale.

Using glass seed beads that are glittery, translucent, and iridescent accentuates the play of light on the object and gives one the richness one finds in tapestries and mosaics.

Gluing one bead at a time on an object satisfies my obsessive nature and gives each piece a power.
