works are expressions of those things in life that bring us
joy, pleasure, comfort, and something of mystery. I focus on
the quiet beauty of everyday objects in the home to the most
powerful expression of life, the human form itself. Everyday
objects shown in a new light can awaken our memories, or --with
objects from other cultures-- inspire a view to a world that
we may have only seen through books or film. With the human
form, I hope to bring glimpses of real and imaginary personalities
in moments of reflection and reverie, at play, or asserting
the sum of their view of life.
The focus of my work is to bring
my imagination to the forefront, wherein I may communicate a
concrete view of something intangible within myself.
I enjoy working in a variety of mediums including painting,
sculpture, and printmaking. This allow me a variety of modes
of expression which I find exciting and stimulating which I
feel comes out in the work itself.
It has been my constant goal
to create works that stimulate a "conversation" between the
viewer and the figures or objects within my works. As the creator
of the works, I suppose I am in some way present in these "conversations",
which allows me to share something of myself with the world
