Sculpture

During my childhood, I collected treasure. Searches for emeralds and rubies were satisfied by alternatives in fragments of costume jewelry, bubblegum-machine plastic, and stones with glittering mica. Quests to notice, collect, synthesize, and invent still drive my work as an artist and educator.  Rummaging and ruminating, I now create serial sculpture that incorporates ceramics, found objects, and poetry fragments.

These collaborative pieces drawn and painted by my four-year-old daughter, Imogen, are inspired by the House-Tree-Person psychological assessment - with my embellishments and papercraft techniques offering a merging of my daughter’s concepts of home, environment, and figure with my own.
