bio

I like to imagine that my curiosity toward painting and sculpture results in coherent artifacts of integrity that are intuitively accessible.

Artist’s Statement: principles of elements - painting, sculpture, work on paper;

After many years of practice I trust a degree of empathy and understanding have found lodging in me.

I am intrigued with the idea of approximations, even approximations of other approximations. I see this all the time as we relate one thing or another to each other.

Although a work of mine may start with an initial idea I am always certain it is going to change, evolve and go through permutations that may or may not resemble the initial idea. It's exactly this phenomena, this discovery that intrigues me.

Crafting work confidently and coherently is my ambition, so when viewed it can be accessible; intuitively and subjectively understood.
