Hector, N.Y.

For as long as I can remember I have made objects; when I was young they were ephemeral. Permanence came with the discovery of needles, thread, fabric, wood, hammer and nails. College graduation found me painting with watercolors selling my work in local shows, but the acquisition of an old house forced me to put down my paint brush and return to the hammer.

My house and children kept me working with fiber and wood. A return to college for a master’s degree found me taking all that the house had taught me to a concentration in sculpture. My love for painting landscapes took me to landscape sculptures in wood. The magic of weaving led to the production of sculpture formed from panels of woven copper wire.
