My medium is anything!  Twigs, vines, workshop scraps and found objects are everywhere.  It is a challenge to create sculpture from found objects: each has its own character, dimension and original purpose. Found objects and natural objects from the forest and trees combine to become whimsies that challenge the imagination and amuse the psyche. A natural burl becomes an exaggerated figure; a whimsical root becomes a tangle of extremities and a shoe last becomes a clownish foundation. I create art to amuse!
