S T A T E M E N T

My wire sculptures and mixed media installation pieces reference the female form and become drawings in space.  The wires change in thickness as a drawn line might.  Words like thoughts appear.  The wire creates a tension--"wired"--while also conveying both strength and fragility.  Wire figures are suspended in space, clinging to walls, sitting, crouching, appearing and disappearing; secrets are whispered, fears revealed.  The viewer is eavesdropping on someone's secret obsessive thoughts.

I strip the figure bare, revealing both strength and vulnerability while exposing longing, loneliness and fear in a changing and uncertain world.
