dear art afficianados
     Witch Doctor was created in honor of Halloween. She was created from an assortment of found objects, i.e., twigs, straw, human hair, peacock feathers, carpet scraps, animal skeletons, paper, dried flowers, dried vegetation, copper tape, agates, feathered bird eggs, old jewelry, small metal animals, etc.

     You see, I keep a large assortment of junk in my studio and when I get inspired, I pull everything out, (making a huge mess) and start putting stuff together until it starts to form something recognizable. It usually starts with my attraction to an individual object, which starts me assembling/arranging around that object into the final piece.Witch Doctor specializes in curing people with laughter and curiosity. So, let her wipe your troubles away. "Happy Halloween"!

artist statement
I create art because I must.
It is a necessary extension of my life.
It identifies and substantiates my existence.
It is my profile and my legacy.
I want to intrigue and entertain.
I want to initiate wonder and questions.
I want to communicate my thoughts, dreams and desires.
Most of all, I want to be
