About The Artist

Creating sculptural lighting has been my full time passion since my youngest son started kindergarten in 1999.... bringing together many aspects of my life. As a child, the waters and forests were my place of wonder and discovery. In college, my studies prepared me to "manage our resources and share environmental awareness". As an adult ( are we there yet?), I still seek to share the ebb and flow of life around us.

Each piece has a story to tell... materials gathered and blended - as if they grew together....personal reflections on form - shape - texture - drama... images of people - places we've been or want to be.

I hope each piece takes you to a special place... a landscape within Home.
