I’m an artist and author with 30+ years creating artwork and writing articles and books related to self-expression. I make three-dimensional, one-of-a-kind paper mache bird sculpture and collage and bird jewelry. I paint with paper that I tear (sometimes into pieces as tiny as the head of a pin), wire and found objects I treasure. On larger pieces, I incorporate actual paint. I write a story that goes with each piece I create. I love giving new life to random paper and stray objects in the form of one of nature’s most magical, healing creatures—birds—that lift spirits and embody hope. Behind me here, is where I observe the birds who inspire me.
My work has been featured in solo shows including Ombre Gallery, curated by jewelry historian Jenna Shaifer, that features contemporary work across the globe, and at the Carnegie Visual Arts and Performing Arts Center. Other solo shows include international professional and public conferences that focus on healing and inspirational and uplifting stories and art such as Hospice, Alzheimer’s Association and American Society on Aging. I’m honored to be selected by curator Renee Phillips as a featured artist in The Healing Power of Art & Artists. I was awarded first and second place awards for drawing in a juried art show judged by modernist Charles Harper. My artwork is exhibited and sold in galleries in the U.S.
