Continuing to explore and riff on the notion of home, leaving the nest and what we find, keep, and leave behind.

Welcome home

In situ. Recently hung Pool, a recent mixed media painting in my foyer and caught some lovely morning light as it dwelled among some of my sculptures and plants.   Whether you are coming, or going, living with art creates peace, and a sense of place.

Organic Sculptures as Sanctuary Spaces

Organic Sculptures as Sanctuary Spaces

Once again, I seem to be channeling my Inner Hunter and Gatherer.  This time, the work is a potpourri of sculpture- my beloved and often enigmatic Nets as sanctuary spaces holding treasures found in backyard gardens and neighborhood walks with my dogs.
