why....

Always, there have been stories in my mind.

And as long as I can remember, I have made things.

Making things is one of my ways to tell a story - by shaping the material at hand, I am able to give voice to the tales of everyday life. Sometimes,those materials have their own words to add and so the story can often have a twist or an ending that surprises even the author. 

Wool and string, odd bits of paper, lost things and found things.....all of these and more, I have used to bring to life ideas that have been floating around and taking shape in my mind. Sometimes those ideas lead somewhere. At other times they are simply a way of expressing a fleeting thought or feeling and not meant for permanence.
