I see my sculptures as multi-dimensional drawings. Through sensitive use of form and material, I create delicate-seeming but actually robust forms which become part of their environment rather than imposing upon it, adding an element of mystery and discovery. I use fine wires to weave patterns that outline figures, and construct forms which appear to float in space. Using pine needles in geodesic triangulation I have developed a technique which allows the construction of life-size figures from this fragile material. When creating what might be viewed as more traditional drawings I use the minimum of lines to express movement and form, and have brought this into my sculpture to create three-dimensional line drawings with a similar aesthetic using metal rods, and on occasion natural materials.
