Artist Statement

Form and myth are the guiding forces in my work. Art nouveau and the symbolists have been some of the most influential imagery in my current pieces.

I think Black and white sculpture is a way for me to make things simple, reflecting my desire to make life easier, simpler. To express my ideas I create porcelain figures, and encase them in scenes of wood and copper.


Making things is almost obsessive for me. Starting at a young age I began drawing, sculpting and writing. In college I studied illustration and dabbled in clay on the side. In the last 25 years, claywork has become a pleasurable pastime and way to make a living.

I have run a production studio, shown my sculpture in local venues and worked as a carpenter. I consider myself an emerging fine artist and look forward to exploring new work.
