Austin, TX

Please come to our upcoming event Art '04 on May 14th and 15th from 11-5 p.m. This front yard/open studio tour will showcase artists in the Zilker neighborhood plus the artists of Thornton Road, and in Bouldin, all in the Austin zipcode of 78704. Our location on Goodrich Ave. will have live music as well on both days.
-I create 3-D works in steel finding inspiration in the bountiful variety of our native Texas plants. Recreating delicate flowers in the impenetrable medium of steel fascinates me and informs my art. I design flowers of various shapes and sizes ranging from single stem roses to large bouquets, agaves and other succulents, and vertical gardens. Patinas applied over fabric stencils have been a new area of exploration.
