Houston Bound

I'll be participating in this year's Primavera Event at the Galleria Mall in Houston, TX.  It's an event filled with fashion shows, beauty demonstrations, live music and beautifully designed gardens by local florists and landscapers. I will be incorporating my sculptures in a garden.  You can see my work on display infront of Sak's 5th Avenue. 

The cats will be missing their perches though...
