Working with wire is like drawing three-dimensional pictures in air.  It’s much more than reshaping tightly wound wire from a spool. It’s about making real things-- baskets, sculpture, and jewelry-- that visualize ideas, reflect emotions, and show a sense of humor and wit.  To me, art in our lives should be about provoking reactions, stimulating memories, creating smiles, and making connections. 

Born and raised on a little island in the Seattle area, I attended college in Chicago (BA Psychology Northwestern University, minors in art history and literature), then graduate school in Washington DC (MBA Marketing, George Washington University) with a career in advertising and marketing the arts in mind.

After several years in corporate life, concurrent with showing artwork in galleries, I realized my life was much happier in the studio than in the conference room.  So I switched careers and for thirty years now have been happily creating artwork from my home-based studio that looks out on the iconic Space Needle and downtown Seattle.
