I love working with simple, primitive styles that look like they might be found along a path while walking in the woods or along a river. So these pieces are all displayed with or on wood or stone pieces to strengthen that feeling of unearthing a treasure.

Spirit Ball....this is taken from an Native American belief that the artist's spirit is captured within the sphere. One hears the 'spirit' by shaking the sphere and hearing the rattle of the spirit inside. I love this concept as I feel that a portion of my spirit is transferred to all of my art pieces, whether it is 3D or 2D.
