sculptural costume-performance piece; Dacron; cloth; cardboard; chicken wire; artist's technique: "I follow the rudiments of basic geometry and sewing as I work, first making a pattern out of muslin, then cutting whatever fabric, plastic or leather. I use my own frame for basic support; however as more is needed I use cardboard, wood, wire, chicken wire, and various stuffings. As each character/form demands, I utilize minor techniques on the surface--- applique, embroidery, quilting(machine), and the addition of all types of soft and hardware."
