Runnin’ Down a Dream

Artist’s Guild Gallery

October 1-26, 2018

Art Walk Reception October 18th 5-8 p.m.


Artist’s Statement:


I've been running down dreams my whole life. Sometimes accomplishing a dream has validated my personal vision of myself, sometimes given me joy, and others have given me a sense of fulfillment and purpose. Those left undone sometimes haunt me. Often, running down a dream requires overcoming hardship and fear. Every dream is fueled by inspiration that speaks to my my heart and my own work ethic.


The process of welding and making 3D objects from steel is much like a familiar process of things past…textile design and sewing, pieces and patterns.  Every single project is different, sometimes very organic in concept. If the project is not engineered, I like to work with scraps, like a puzzle, putting the pieces together to form something.


This body of work, organic-modern furniture and accessories, contains pieces on a larger scale as well as new techniques and processes I’ve been wanting to try.   This is another step along the path of dreams I passionately hope to pursue and accomplish.  The passion of my dreams is my art!
