Statement

I look at a piece of paper as 'tabla rosa' a clean slate, perfect potential.  This potential is activated by light and shadow as each decision creases into the paper.   

My work celebrates the delicate nature of paper in museum quality bronze.  Beginning a career in printmaking, my love for paper continued with my transition into sculpture.  While working in a foundry, I developed an "organic burnout" technique specifically designed for casting paper that risks each original as the are burned out within the ceramic mold.  The result is a one of a kind bronze sculpture, chased by hand and completed with finishing touches exclusive to my work.  To meet the growing response from collectors, a few pieces each year are selected for limited edition casting.  These also give me more time in the studio to continue exploring new ideas (the whole point of being an artist).  Origami, paper planes, crumpled ideas and innovative abstraction are all themes that inspire this unfolding portfolio that strives towards a most archival form of paper.  My greatest joy is in creating work in a way that provides an opportunity for interaction and surprise when the viewers read the sign: Please Touch!
