Sparks Are Flyin'

Title of Piece #3: Dragonfly #16
Media: Metal, glass, clay
Dimensions: 44"H x 35"W x 35"D
Retail Price: $995 + tax

Artist’s Statement: My dragonflies attract attention using a combination of movement, color and light. Closer up, detailed layers of glass, patina and paint will emerge and engage.

Artist’s Bio: When I create art, bringing it from inside to outside, I want to connect. Connect my curiosity and my subconscious to the real world where I use tools and materials and problem solving to make things that will, hopefully, make a connection to other human beings. If you will pause, look a little closer, wonder about what or how, see something the second time you didn't see the first, smile or laugh…that's why I make art. It takes everything I am to make that work, and when that happens, it's all worth it.
