This piece was inspired by the tour carriages that often are parked outside the Natchitoches Art Gallery, It was constructed by twisting several different types of wire in different gauges into the representative shapes.
To avoid any misunderstanding, the portrait is me, painted by my good friend and fellow art guild member Margie Tate. Margie did this portrait as a demonstration for an art guild meeting.
Having never taken a formal art class, I count myself among artists who describe themselves as “self-taught”, though I am completely aware of the fact that I learn from others constantly.
I am fascinated with wire and the magical way it lends itself to being transformed into whatever is in the mind and hands of the person bending and twisting and plying the metal. I have hanging on my wall my first piece of wire art. I keep it there as a reminder of the growth an artist experiences by simply going through the processes that define one’s work....
