I would like to think that I am not the typical American artist. I have no classical education in art other than the years I spent in the high end sales of the women’s fashion industry in Europe. My love has always been mobile art. Space and movement = life. Upon my return to the U.S., I began building my kinetic art portfolio. Serendipity is the discovery of things which we are not in quest of. My mobiles were of linear nature, my first serendipitous experience. My second intuitive realization brought the concept of creating three dimensional sculptures, consisting of thousands of minute pieces, from a suspended grid. This discovery has taken over my life.
