I have seen several images and documentaries  that feature bears cubs hitching a ride on their mother's back.

Even though I haven't seen this myself

I have created my own version with this

piece. Now I think I've fallen in love

with bears.

Bases vary with each casting.

Dimensions: 13"h x 9.5"w x 8"d


   I think we all feel at least some sense of joy and renewal when spring rolls around each year. The wild critters I have combined in this piece have come through the winter with more than a little pent up energy that just has to be expressed.

   This sculpture is part of a series of miniatures based on the wild creatures of the high desert wilderness surrounding my home in Sedona.

Dimensions: 18"h x 8"w x 8"d


   This piece was inspired by a mockingbird's song. It made me remember the cacophony of sounds that can be heard near

 a pond as evening falls.

Thoughts of ponds inevitably led me to

In much the same vein as Spring Fever, I have combined two jackrabbits in a joyful dance, expressing an exuberance that just can't be contained.

Dimensions: 18"h x 12"w x 8"d


  I began this piece by sculpting a

jackrabbit. I loved his wonderful big ears.

Somewhere in the midst of creating

him, I began to think of Aesop's fable

regarding the tortoise and the hare.

In this piece I've resolved the conflict

of racing against each other. By

working together they have both

reached the finish line together,

resolving rivalry.

This little field mouse is partially hidden under an Arizona Sycamore leaf. Bases vary, each piece is different.

During our travels in various parts of the world, my husband and I spent many pleasant hours in sidewalk cafes. 

Aside from great people watching,

these venues offer opportunities 

for close interaction with birds

who come to scavenge crumbs

scattered about the paving.

Sometimes they venture

boldly to the tabletop.  This

sculpture is the result of

times shared with birds at the

sidewalk cafes of Paris.

   There is an abundance of Gambel quail

in the Sedona area. Mostly, one encounters

them marching in lines across the roads,

but now and then they are startled into

flight from cover. This fine fellow is

captured rising from a clump of iris.

The quail was interesting to sculpt

but making the fancy curled petals

of the iris blossom was a challenge

and basically,  just a lot of fun.

Dimensions: 15"h x 21"w x 11.5"d
