Statement

As an artist, I emerged rather late in life at the age of 47. I entered Indiana University intending to make art, and somehow came out the other end with a Math degree - with minors in Physics and Russian. I spent 15 years as a troubleshooter in the business computing field. Curiously, every company I worked for is no longer a part of the corporate genome. Every program I ever wrote has now disappeared into the yawning gap of eternal nonexistence.

I hold a wide variety of interests from history and politics to evolutionary development of brains and humans, through quantum mechanics and philosophy. I am a voracious reader, and am, in short, intensely interested in what it means to be human.

My art is primarily figurative, with a formal bow in the direction of the surrealists. I am interested in the components of social interations and relationships - primarily those between men and women.

I first cast metal at the age of thirteen. I have worked, throughout high school and college, at foundries and steel mills. Casting was my first love, and I have finally returned to it.

I am currently employed as Studio Technician and Bronze Casting Instructor at Harper College in Palatine, IL.
