Exhibiting Member Since 1991

Since early childhood I carved, sculpted and modeled fantasy characters, dolls and faces from any material I could get my hands on. I am always intrigued and fascinated by ancient cultures, their traditions and ceremonies and their strong connection to nature. Being outside surrounded by nature gives me a feeling of belonging and home. By creating a mask I can bond my passion for old cultures and nature together and create expressions of beauty in a way that can uplift the human spirit. In studying leather sculptures from the Orient and Spain and Venetian Paper Mache’ masks from Italy I found a media challenging and rewarding at the same time. The feathers I use are obtained from farm raised birds, mainly exotic chickens, various pheasants, turkey and guinea. I create each piece intuitively starting with an idea of color and shape to reflect the energy and beauty of nature.
