Direction for these mixed media wall-mounted assemblages initially grew with a goal to keep forms continually fresh while exhausting possibilities. As the work developed I realized I had found a way to deal with the on-going reality of fragmentation in my life; all that whirls around. Each work brings various parts and pieces together to form a new sense of whole. Assemblages start with a driving idea and referenced-based drawings of negative a positive spaces. Forms to put into “constructive” play are then cut from wood, stretched in embroidery or cast in concrete.
