I create hand twisted wire sculptures inspired by the quirkiness and beauty of nature. Each piece is hand twisted, not heat or solder, with needle-nose pliers and patience. Every piece is unique and the menagerie ranges from the mythical to the mundane. Dragons and unicorns hand out with sparrows and deer.
