I think of my work as artfully re-purposing a previous life; celebrating and honoring animals and culture long forgotten. While I use a variety of materials and processes in each project my methodology is consistent. The subject matter of each body of work determines the materials and the forms of the work. My arrangements and organizational placements are a reflection of my inner and external personality, I rely on symmetry to reflect beauty. Each piece of work has 18,000 -65,000 beads placed individually by hand and helps show my passion for the art form. The uncompromising desire to reflect the beauty in each piece drives each bead placement.
