Three Dreams
Three Dreams

Bare tree branches in winter remind me of the mind when asleep...just black, white and gray. But, then from the subconscious mind come dreams, an abstract and limitless creation of the imagination. 34"H x 32"W x 2" $1,275.

The Nest Makers
The Nest Makers

I have been fascinated with wild birds for many years. The vision to create this piece came to me when studying an abandoned nest in my yard. This artwork illustrates my fascination with wild birds and how they parallel human behavior. Human beings work diligently to make nests for their family, holding them as high priority, as depicted in this sculpture. Digitally printed cotton and silk organza, cotton threads, natural tree branches. 39"H x 7.5" x 7.5" $600.
