Taking Flight
Powder Coated Steel 96.5"h x 35"w x 44"d Public Art Collection – City of McCall, Idaho Taking Flight represents our deep connection to nature. As the bird takes flight, the person also takes flight energetically, while physically staying grounded and strong. The bird as messenger leads us to our joy. Both human and bird have energy moving through their bodies, reminiscent of the flow of water in a river, the source of all life. Created in memory of Larry G. Looney. Powder coated blue to bring attention to our deep connection to nature, open skies and free flowing rivers.
Chris Poole-Jones Memorial
Powder Coated Stainless Steel 72” h x 42” w x 36” d Commissioned for the June Key Delta Community Center in Portland, OR. This Memorial pays tribute to Christine W. Poole-Jones, an incredible community leader who was loved and respected by so many, for her generous heart, her commitment to community, family, friends, and the values she held dear. In a poised yet powerful stance this beautiful Delta Sigma Theta Soror forms with her hands the shape of the Delta triangle. This symbol represents her uncompromising commitment to make a difference for her community. In her chest the Delta symbol takes the shape of a heart, representing her generous spirit of service that she so actively gave to transform her community. She is standing on a triangular base, a variation of the Delta design, with 9 pearls to represent the 9 cardinal virtues and the strong foundation these values create. Many thanks to the Portland Chapter, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and the generous support of the Portland Development Commission who made this memorial possible.

Folding Into Nature
Vitreous Enamel (glass) on Hammered Steel 8.75 x 10 x 9.5 inches Folding Into Nature is the title piece for my current body of work, exploring how we as humans are coping with the environmental and cultural challenges we are facing. This body of work explores the many ways we find meaningful moments amidst these challenges, even joy, reaching for a calm acceptance of what is. This piece is my way of coming to terms with how we as humans are folding back into nature as our time on earth is limited.
