San Rafael, CA
My artwork, both the prints and the sculpture, tries to capture the flow or motion of an object. Most of my work is inspired by the things I see in nature which capture my eye and/or imagination. Most of my work is an abstraction of an object or scene in which I try to capture the motion, form, color or all three. My sculptures in particular focus on movement. You can touch them and watch the moving parts. I use the paper I make to make relief types of two dimensional art or combine it with copper to form the sculptures. I enjoy experimenting with different paints and techniques often combining different mediums.
I studied art with my father, Charles Berry, and at San Jose State University. After teaching elementary school I returned to studying different art techniques and renewing my interest in printmaking, paper art, and sculpture. These are the three things that intrigued me the most in my art studies.
