"I have found that metal can be soft and voluminous, transformed into a ruffle or a piece of lace or a couch."
I am a sculptor. I use steel and found objects. I am bold and I put myself out there working from intuition, and pushing the boundaries of the imagination. My work is an extension of my personality. It is made with humor and whimsy while maintaining strength in its monument. It explores the dichotomy of gender versus the typically masculine material implications of metal. I am interested mainly in making metal look as if it is doing the unthinkable, like wind blowing up a girl’s skirt, growing in nature as a garlic bulb, or becoming a soft inviting old leather couch. I make pretty things from dirty old metal scraps. Consequently, my current work evokes Vermont culture and history because the works are created from salvaged agricultural parts, specific to their environment. Environment, like taste, evokes a sense of place.
