ARTIST STATEMENT:

My work results from a rhythmic and organic process involving ideas, feelings, images, formal play, and structural necessity. Every aspect of the process has the potential to hold meaning, to draw upon and focus our general physical and perceptual experience of the world.

All my work is driven by the character of the material, but, essential as that physical aspect is, it is not the sculpture. For me, the sculpture lies somewhere between its clear identity as a physical thing and its psychological aspect, all that it suggests, evokes, resembles or aligns with. It is the embodiment of thoughts, feelings and attitudes.
