The purpose of my artwork is to provoke a perceptual, internal, and intellectual response for the viewer; a visual that speaks to life’s experiences. To create symbols of universal connection and the relationship that one has to another and to nature.



I enjoy the challenge of working with permanent and natural materials. Unlike other materials or mediums where one can add or delete, with natural material, one can only delete.  The materials often dictate to me the direction in which the design is supposed to head. It is my belief that as we go through life we can only create from that which we have, or are given.  We cannot replace that which is lost or taken away or that which we never had.  The ability to interpret and create beauty from that which we have is the challenge and the satisfaction I experience in creating my work


As I work through the creative process of visualizing, drawing, or forming a maquette in clay, I utilize a sixth sense I feel through my hands.  I am able to draw upon the subconscious of my experiences and, in-turn, interpret gesture, form, energy, pleasure and pain.  Alternating between gesture and geometric form, depicting the contradiction we experience in nature, awakening in the viewer an appreciation of the duality in the world around us.
