About the Artist
Sumptuous wrapped fiber over a hollow core creates these dimensional, architectural wall elements. Like cylindrical tapestries, called Quiet Oboes, they celebrate color and form with lightness and grace. They are jewelry for the wall. While having a character of their own, they also play well with others, fitting into modern, transitional, ethnic, and other spaces, fitting, yet maintaining their own personality. They are multiple forms of fiber and natural elements, including twigs, beads, jute, and at times, wire. These blends assist them in their contextural fit with so many environments, and it all occurred as part of the happy accident that often contributes to art. I also love the art of collaborative work with other artists, such as Liz Cummings, whose work is shown in the third and fourth images, of examples of how well the Quiet Oboes play with others.
Perhaps they are extensions of myself. I love creating them, and love creating the addition to the environment in providing installations for the client. My love of discovering what moves and motivates people turbocharges my natural drive in the creative process. The client’s wish list adds one more dimension to the process of working in the established three dimensions. There is no loss of self in this: they, the Oboes, are still my passion and carry my signature. And I sincerely believe that the joy of generating the work, the overall assembly of these parts creates a bigger whole…and that the joy translates to the viewer. Enjoy.
