Making torch-fired enamels on copper foil suits my present mood; it's become my artistic Voice, as it were. It's able to convey, through folding and hammering; the application by sifting or bright or subdued colors; the challenges of making the enamels adhere to upside down surfaces; and the overall wonkiness of the pieces, how we are navigating weird and difficult times. My ideas come to me in bunches: as I worked on one piece, I was already thinking of the next in the series. Series seem to be my way of addressing different aspects of particular thoughts. Thoughts, in turn, are influenced by the news — yesterday's or today's. My work reflects my ongoing concern for social issues.
