Kites is a still-evolving series of works begun in 2014. Those kites- dancing in the sky, struggling against their tethers- intrigue me still. They have taken me off the canvas and pushed me to think in new directions and explore new materials.

What I really wanted was to grab an actual chunk of sky, just as the kite tails whip through, the ephemeralness of that moment, in my hand. So I made Sky Pieces. (Hand poured and polished lucite and satin ribbon.)

And then I thought, I want to wear this Sky Piece. So I made Sky Jewels. (polished lucite,sterling silver)
