A Vintage Garden

I make three dimensional wire sculptures, some for the garden, and some for the house. The ones for the garden I make along with my husband Phil. It's a lot of fun making together as we bounce ideas off each other to create new designs. Capturing movement means everything to me! It’s my inspiration when creating a wire sculpture, and my greatest pride when receiving a critique.
