Artist's Statement:

"I conceive my bead sculpture as theater in miniature, a dance around the neck that tells a story of transformation. Although the media varies, all of my art (from beads to theater) comes from the same place – a place of muscular imagination.

In performance, my body has been the sculpture, my emotional energy has been the color and rhythm. I have learned composition on my feet, by finding my place in each image created for the stage.
Improvising on the stage with my whole body is not really that different from creating my beaded works. The beads play in my hands, inviting me to join in the improvisation. I seek to create a suspended quality in my work, where organic flow meets conflict in a highly theatrical moment."
