Canyon Walls Series

    Fired copper is the signature of my work. This process literally arose out of the ashes of the Oakland fire of 1991, (2011 is the 20 year anniversary)  after my studio and home burned to the ground. While digging through the rubble, amid my tears and grief, I discovered beautiful burned rolls of copper that inspired a dramatic redirection to my artistry / artistic endeavors.

     

     Handmade paper is the “canvas” that enhances the organic, “soft” feeling of my creations. The unique nature of my work is in combining fired metals, paper and other materials to represent nature’s process of aging as found in rusted metals, dry river beds and stained stone walls. This is my life's aspiration.
