Over the years, Iris has taken many sculptural courses at Haliburton School of the Arts but found the wrapped wire course with Charles O’Neal the one that she enjoyed the most. Iris enjoys making wire “speak” a different language. From being used as something to hold fences together, send electrical currents or act as structural arms, she turns wire into creatures such as birds, cats and dragonflies and infuses them with personality and whimsey.
Mosaics, her second medium of choice, are challenges in line, colour, movement and pattern. From tile to stained glass to metal pieces and found objects come creations that emote and tease. She is self-taught….and just follows where her eye leads her.
