Artist Statement

The essence of my sculpture reveals itself as I seek to weave the accumulated ideas crossing divergent disciplines into a nexus of work and experiences. the work is akin to my life in its ongoing process. There is the need to preserve the essence of things. The ritual of art provides the catalyst in which these essences are re-born as art. the various stimuli provided by nature as we watch its transformation and study the ideas, the ideas that are allegories mirroring aspects of its mystery, and the human form provide inspiration for a myriad of sculptural ideas.
