Artist Statement

I feel the most important thing about being an artist is enjoying the creative spirit within. Inspiration comes from living in the Sonoran Foothills and observing desert wildlife in this natural habitat. My early artistic training focused on the anatomical accuracy of a subject and I continue to create works of art that are as lifelike as possible. My intention is to elicit a shared emotional response: I want the viewer to feel what I am feeling as I capture the dignity and expression of each animal. I am attuned to the shifting clarity of light in the desert and it is light that attracted me to dichroic glass. My exploration and discoveries in the 3-D discipline of fusing glass and hand-cut metal is exciting and rewarding. Motivated by my surroundings, I design jewelry and pictorial wall art in the spirit of the Southwest striving to bring awareness, understanding and sensibility to a critical need for the preservation of precious wildlife that is dependent upon the survival of the undeveloped wilds of the Sonoran Desert.
