From my earliest memories of walks through field and wood with my father, I have been awed by nature's creations and sharing my passion through creating art. Our own physical presence repeats the rhythms and shapes we see there.  It is not by coincidence that one of the mediums in which I have chosen to sculpt is terracotta, a natural material made of earth itself.  It is a conduit for my interpretation of  nature's cycle of life, for the living earth as both a source and site for all existence, and a direct connection between people and the place they inhabit.    My figurative work is meant to capture a fleeting moment, a consciousness, a communication of human circumstance in forms that are dynamic and evocative, and in shapes that echo the undulating earth and seas.

Now with climate change and the unending destruction of our environment by human activities, my work is taking on new challenges.  In the last few years tremendous change has happened in my own community and the greater community of the world, and I have been compelled to make my art a more direct expression of sentiment.
I hope to bring attention to what we have that may soon, or already, be lost.  I want to illuminate the results of corporate greed, individual greed, human negligence and indifference.
