I create my sculptures by drawing gesturally with wire or steel rods- twisting, melting and manipulating, until the armature speaks to me. These three dimensional artworks are formed by stretching a strudy, opaque material over a linear steel construction. My airy artworks look like floating, celestial cloud formations that have come to life in three dimensions.
