The sculpture I create derives from a similar place as my drawings and paintings since a narrative thread runs through all my work. The most recent pieces, which are a mixed media of embroidery, photos and ceramics directly source my Mushroomville world. The older work sources a variety of inspiration such as nursery rhymes, childhood playmates, imaginary characters and portraits of people I know and love. What I have found is a constant: it is how making a piece with your hands comes from a different place inside rather than creating an image with painting or drawing. And this difference has drawn me back to sculpture after many years of neglect .
