Artist's Statement: Wings is an organic, streamlined sculpture in painted steel.

It refers to the metamorphosis of butterflies. Butterflies are a symbol of transformation, because of their impressive process of metamorphosis.

By observing butterflies, we can relate to our own lives.  Each of us transforms through multiple stages in our life: moments of growing pains, times of hunger and vulnerability, followed by moments of tremendous energy, growth, wonder and amazement.
