With this work I want to engage the viewer in a gentle way with my figures. The frogs, bugs, butterflies and birds that create the hair of the children are symbols for their thoughts. Children need the abundance of nature, as we all do. Nurturing young children's initiate curiosity for the natural world so they become steward's of the earth will help save our planet for them.

Bee Boy, glazed in earth tones, is abuzz with a hive of bees for hair. Bird Girl, with a nest of interlocking birds for hair, holds a bird behind her back. Fog Boy quietly observes his friends. While Nature Child cradles frogs, owls, bats and a jack rabbit in the pockets of her dress. Her clothing becomes their sanctuary. These pieces are allegorical, a reminder to us to pay attention and protect our natural world.
