Beadwork & Sculptures
has been fascinated with beads for over 30 years. He has done
bead embroidery, jewelry, and added beads to some of his bronze
sculptures. The beaded pieces found here are a body of work
he has created since 2002 when he began the shift from bronze
to beads. They are, for the most part, bead embellished quilts
where the beads are embedded in the surface of the quilt and
their application does the quilting. Using the quilt as a canvass
and the beads as texture and paint, he has developed a unique
style combining fabric and beads.
