Item details

This suspended sculpture enlivens the 30ft high stairwell in Maury Elementary School’s library. A six foot diameter armature holds 8 cables graduated in length to match the slope of the stair rail. Acrylic shapes dance in midair and catch the morning sunlight from the curtain windows opposite the sculpture. The stairway provides seating for students to read their favorite books underneath the colorful geometric forms.

Large scale sculpture and public art

When I was little, I built tree forts with anything I could find. I wanted to create a world that was entirely my own. Now I share that world by creating colorful and whimsical artwork in schools, parks, and other public spaces. My art practice encompasses drawing, painting, and mixed media, but it is taking the ideas I generate in 2D and scaling them up to large three dimensional sculptures that is the most exciting for me. My work uses simple repeated forms to create more complex compositions and emphasizes the value of play in our daily life.
