Venus in Paradise

This book sculpture was a gift. This is an interactive box, where you can move the sea shells, Venus, birds, the dolphins and sun….Much like the rhythm of the waves moving, the figures remind me that life never stands still…

Pyramid Book

The Answer - Pyramid Book Sculpture

In this pyramid form, the book takes the reader through a series of questions, all which are designed to give an answer according to what dimension it comes from. I contend that there are always four ways to solve a problem through the four aspects of our psyche. The four aspects of the pyramid are the dimensions of the human experience in the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual world. The truest answer to some of life’s most troubling problems is in the center of all four worlds: Acceptance.

To Be Whole - Copper Zipper Book Sculpture

If You Could… Would You - Swiss Cheese Book Sculpture

This book sculpture is influenced by the TV show/book from Stephen King called The Dead Zone, which is about a man’s psychic gifts and how he sees the world through his visions, which include the “dead zone” a factor that means he only sees part of the scene or a part that can change with every passing moment. I did this sculpture in response to that TV series, and asked the questions: if we could see into the future, would we want to; would you want to see a big issue in your life now, is in the same state 30 years in the future; or, that you gained 50 pounds in the future? How would knowing the future affect what we do today???

Hopefully that strong emotion can be a catalyst to empowerment, to be a force for change in the world. What you can do to help is listed in the back of the book.
