Statement about my work and Lilith:

Starting with myths and the creatures that inhabit them, my work has drawn inspiration from the past. The ancient legend of Lilith is the basis of a number of my sculptures. Some of the most recent figures are a series of snake women and succubi, made from wild grapevine bark.

image This photo is a fiber sculpture of LILITH. The crocheted head is a woman's with the woven body of a serpent. The imagery used in many of my pieces is figurative and deals with metamorphosis.
