The direction of my most recent works is creating environmental situations by making animals, insects, lizards, birds, frogs, and fish, and then combining them with my created plant life.

I hope to build a tableau that requires the observer to think about nature which ultimately is our responsibility. 

As far as the processes I use to make the mixed-media sculptures, it depends on the subject. I find the techniques and materials that will best suit it.  I like to combine clay, crochet fiber, branches, paper, a new product called  “Wonderflex”, silk-screened fabric, hand  and sewing machine stitching, welded steel, and wire armatures.  One of the best compliments comes when someone doesn’t know what the whole piece is made out of.
