Gallery of Work ~ Springmelt Series

In the early spring I walk near the river watching the reflection of light and water on delicate layers of ice. Observations during these cycles of melting and freezing have inspired the Spring Melt series.

The circular or boat shape of each sculpture is formed by lashing together found wood. Over the wooden base, woven detritus encircles translucent layers of found objects and netted wire.

"...through her intuitive artistic alchemy, the timeworn fragments she recovers coalesce into discrete microcosms vibrant with new energy and new narratives."
