My search in the visual arts is for the hidden Human spirit. That small part that makes us each unique, yet finds us a common home. I have been a paid professional as well as an active volunteer in state run mental institutions, private and county run nursing homes and been a drug rehabilitation counselor. Overriding this vein is the love of movement and dance and the shear joy of a good laugh. These feelings find expression three – dimensionally in clay, plaster, wax and metal. In my pieces I first search for that bit of movement, then I search for the humor to help carry me through the piece, and in completion I search for serenity. My fortune lies in the knowledge that my audience has been like my work, ongoing.
