My work is fluid, full of life and movement. Much of it is figurative and has to do with relationships. I love the richness of wood-it allows for infinite expression of ideas.
Artists create glorious objects when they incorporate their life experiences into a personal vocabulary, expressive of their own particular, splendid being. What I make is a mirror of who I am, so when I speak for myself, the message rings true and sincere.
As I cut, carve, sand, and texture, I am living my life. It is a way of uncovering what lies beneath the surface, as influenced by me. The process of making things is of primary importance, and it is what moves my life along and transforms me as I live and work as an artist, discovering much about myself.
