"Reflection" is painted on old shutters that I found at a local flea market. I collaged some "found" wood and metal pieces on to the wax. These shutters are a reflection of the water in that ocean. What happens to these shutters or doors when they live so close to the salty ocean water? I wanted them to look aged from the effects of the sun and the salt spray. interesting textures and faded colors caused by years of ocean side living.

A monumental bright and energetic piece, The Lotus Land creates a harmonious connection with both nature and human society through an unlikely material – 15,000 plastic bags. Standing thirty feet in the air with a diameter of nearly 30 feet, the form is both non-representational and seemingly boundless. The continuous fluttering of the loosely woven blue bags creates a feeling of endless space that emanates from the unseen center of the work and adds an ephemeral quality of natural energy.
