Out of the Box

Out

Out of the Box projects represent the different directions I have taken, working in different genres and materials, and always exploring new ways of expressing my creative nature. 

Created with an "n-scale" model of the Rio Grande California Zephyr, which ran from Chicago, Illinois to Emeryville, California from 1949 to the 1970's.  This work combines painting and real objects in a diorama style setting.  The scene depicts the transition from the Rockies to the desert in western Colorado.

During the 1970's, macramé became very popular as an art form.  "Eagle Face" was created using the metal rim from a western style wagon, and the side legs of a Singer Sewing Machine treadle.
