“I create sculptures using both traditional woodworking techniques and modern wood shaping applications. I have begun to introduce new materials including metals, plastics and paint. While wood continues to be central in my work, this use of a more diverse range of materials allows me to explore new sculptural possibilities and opens up my work to a broader dialogue.”
