Artist's Statement

“My work is material based and straddles the worlds of two and three dimensions. An artwork might start as a wall relief and end as a floor piece. Often interactive, casting magnificent shadows, I combine the handmade with the manufactured, seeking transformation. Movement, as seen through pattern and structure, are essential to the work as is the personification of color. Much of my work offers views of “systems” found in the natural world reflecting life processes such ebb and flow, growth and decay expansion and contraction and the intersection of opposition. It is intentional that my work be viewed in relationship and dialogue to space and surrounding architecture. Ultimately each work I create is about a sense of flux, life in perpetuity.”
