After my initial screw pieces in the late 90's and while I was still painting large abstract paintings, I began to recreate my own baby clothes in screw sculpture.  My pom-pom baby bonnet, my crocheted booties, my pinafore dress all became the beginning of my sculptural body of work and the transformation of these delicate clothes, pink, organza, fine wool knitted shapes was immensely satisfying to me.   Without losing the essence of their ornamental qualities, they became strong, protective objects reaching far back into my own childhood.
