Artists’s Statement: Wading birds from local lagoons are my inspiration. In sculpting them, I try to capture the grace of their movements while also celebrating their awkwardness.

Artists’s Bio:
After running Trios Gallery for 10 years, I have returned to my first love—making art. My husband and I share a tiny shop where we transform steel into sculpture and furniture. We work in salvage, favoring the rusty, scratched-up sheet over the shiny new stuff. My quirky critters are pieced together by hand using the scraps from the shop, so each piece is an original with its own unique personality. My goals in both art and life are pretty simple: to do what I love and to make people smile.
