A little bit about me...
I am a full-time artist living in the Pacific Northwest. Nature has always been my muse. Early in my career, I was an illustrator. I have large porcelain enamel installations in Zoos and nature preserves throughout Washington State.
In 1992, I entered the magical world of whimsy and began sculpting tiny figures. Since the beginning of time, people have made small representations of the human figure and imbued them with meaning. My little figures have been invested with intent, I seek to speak to the imagination. To open the mind and enter into a game of make-believe, traveling back to childhood again, where all things were possible....
My figures are a direct sculpt of clay over a wire armature. Faces were painted, the wire padded, and the body dressed. I choose antique fabrics and trims, repurposing workmanship from another time. Along the way, each tiny figure journeys from my dreams to reality.
In 2015, I added drawing back into my portfolio. With colored pencils and sepia ink, I returned to my beginning. Twenty-five years of sculpting have filled my mind with images, waiting to find their stories. After the drawing, I write a tiny prose that completes the process.
My artistic journey is to unlock simple truths that reside just outside of my perception. Art allows me to travel beyond the restriction of words. I capture glimpses of a beautiful space in time through dreams, myth, and even nursery rhymes. Welcome to the Garden Path Studio!
