SCULPTURES & MIXED MEDIA
I went back to college as a painting major but soon discovered that I had to get my hands into the work...literally.  I switched to sculpture. My father was a Jr.High metal shop teacher which led me to metal sculpting while my mother made braided wool rugs and then pine needle baskets.  At one point in grad school  I added fiber to a metal piece and sparks flew!  A visiting artist directed me to rabbit skin glue which is what I use to stiffen the knitting.  Recently I took an online class on altered dolls.  More sparks flying all over the place!
