I spent the first eight years of my life in Japan, a land whose culture is rich in golden objects, pearls and shells from the sea, finely lacquered boxes, and woven brocade fabrics. Those early images provided lasting influences. My work is an exploration of textures and shapes, enamel and metal finishes, shiny and dull surfaces, solid and see-through forms. By placing opposites next to each other, an energy and tension develops. There is a tactile quality to elements that invite the viewer to respond, to touch, to fondle.
