The repetitive movements of hand fabrication produce a feeling of comfort in the formation of the works.  In doing the same thing over and over again, eventually you stop thinking of what you are doing to think of other things. This could include why the piece is being made, what it is made out of and its significance, the possible end result, subsequent pieces, and how they follow the preceding or deter altogether.


The materials I use in the hand fabrication of the pieces include metals, leather, fiber, plaster, paper, resin, and found objects, as well as some organic material.  With these materials I produce wearable art and sculpture, which consists of multiples and small scale works.  More recently the pieces I have been working on include felting and wool roving, resin, paper, found objects and re-purposed materials.
