Artist StatementMaterial & Form are the two basic elements that my minds eye uses as I build a work. Often just finding one piece of material guides my instinct as to what needs to be done to complete the piece. I continually collect wood, stone, metal, and plant materials from which to draw inspiration. My work at this stage tends to be spare, perhaps Zen-like and certainly Asian influenced. The materials and form I use have strong energy and beauty which I hope to present to the viewer.
Thank you for your patience in viewing these efforts.
