Artist Statement

My most recent work demonstrates a re-visitation to the old school days where art had a more academic and realistic bend. This path allowed me to search for and experiment with other materials such as clay, metal, wood, cement and plaster. My current works in clay as well as large wood structures focus on the human condition.
