About the artist:

At this point in my life, I am in the odd paradoxical position of being an “emerging artist” and also moving into my “senior years.” It is an interesting place to be. On the one hand, there is a sense of urgency driving my practice and life experiences that demands to be woven into the artwork. On the other hand, I am a bit like a kid in a candy store who is barely able to take in the wide-open spaces of the creative process and the variety of media available to me (if I only had enough time!).

My art practice has evolved in the last number of years into two distinct but increasingly overlapping areas:

Sculpture: I am drawn to materials that do not necessarily “play well together.” My “palette” is mainly kiln formed glass, cement, stone, and metal artifacts retrieved from the local junkyard. I enjoy the challenging process of mastering and integrating these materials into a coherent whole.

Painting: after many years of landscape and figure drawing, I feel the need to more closely study traditional elements of painting and composition through abstraction. It is both a daunting and exciting adventure that brings together and expands upon my previous artistic disciplines.
