Her wire sculptures are both rustic and contemporary, and are influenced by nature and organic forms. She handcrafts these birds "that resemble airborne sketches" using silver and mixed metal wire, wood, stones and other organic material. To view more of her work and to get an update on her upcoming exhibitions go to her website.
