My sculptures imply motion, a continuous passage through space. "Thrust, undulation, rhythm, inside, outside, and around" are all words I use to describe my work and the creative process. I begin with paper or strips of metal, cutting and folding, making small models to explore on an intimate scale how form relates to space. I'm influenced by images in the landscape and how movement changes these images. Rhythms of various Greek and Cypriot dances and my study of modern dance patterns help me to realize how I want to cut through space with my materials and colors. The seasons, wind, snow, and rushing waterfalls of Norway, the land of my great grandparents, are also reflected in my work.
