Artist's Statement

"My hanging mobiles are ever-changing works of art. The delicate balance between gravity and the gentle currents in the air around us cause the mobiles to twist and bend, appearing to give them a life of their own. They are constantly redefining not only the positive shape of the mobile itself, but the negative spaces that surround the sculpture.

I like to think of my mobiles as a reminder that although life is ever-changing, one can always find beauty and joy in it. All one needs to do is stay balanced and bend slightly with the breeze."

One of my first....

This is one of the first mobiles I made with the intention of giving it to someone else. Up to this point, I had really just made them for myself because it was fun, then gave them as gifts after the fact. This time, I had the client in mom. It still hangs in her home today, some 5 years later.
The piece is made of aluminum wire with paper shapes. The paper is white on one side, blue on the other. If I had it to do over again, I think I would have made some of the shapes much larger. However, the, "client," seems very happy with it and won't let me change a thing. I did later make a piece with larger shapes that was similar to this called Branches, you can see it in another post. Feel free to contact me if you'd like a similar piece.
