"Henry David Thoreau said, 'As you simplify your life, the laws of the Universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness.' I agree; minimize, de-clutter, purge...that which is not needed...at work and at home. Thus, the appeal of the pear for recent art works. The simple, yet elegant form, the varied colors, sizes, and shapes. Each one tilts as though whispering, making a gesture, inviting one to hold and taste...it's sweet, succulent juice. My comfort lies with creating three dimensionally with media of clay, polymers, wire, and fabric. However, I have also been inspired to play as a painter and to look though the lens of the camera to share the voice of The Pear."
