Several decases of working and playing in depth with a now-handy range of mediums has left me feeling wealthy beyond measure in the skills, abilities, and experience gleaned along the way. 

Lumenpear series: Peariver

All that rub with wood, metal, oilfiber, color and light feels like a family of the finest sort in the practice of making. Thlight-emitting sculpturI've increasingly focused on draws from the whole range of these relationships, so I think of it as a medium of mediums.

Skyhull series: Slipperfin

I'm sculpting copper armatures, making colorful flax-fiber paper, creating a lush surface and glazing it with resins, beeswax and pigments. My practice is currently evolving through several series: Lumenpear, Sky Hull, and Seedpod.

Sky House: Gatekeeper

With the Sky House series (2010-15), I transformed wood and bamboo Balinese birdcages from objects of imprisonment to creatures celebrating joy and freedom. 

Lumenhorse: Translumen

In 1999, I began a still-ongoing body of work under the Lumenhorse umbrella, in the process of getting a Master of Fine Art degree in the northeastern United States. This work grew out of the explorative integration of land, plant, animal, and architectural forms which had birthed the Treebone Garden, and thrived since with the introduction of inner light and translucence.   

Treebone Garden

Treebone Garden was a series of curvaceous wood and natural oil furniture pieces created in Madrid, New Mexico from 1994-99.
