ARTIST STATEMENT
Wood is the warmest and most genuine material I have experienced. I choose exceptional pieces of wood and strive to complement them through sculpting, contrasting, and finishing. Wood stimulates my senses and challenges my solutions.
I do not limit my imagination or classify my inspiration. I attempt to fashion what my mind can conjure. Human, plant, and animal form intrigues and inspires me most. Sometimes I interpret an idea seriously and create an elegant work. Other pieces may reflect the more frivolous character of whimsy, wit, or satire. In all my work, whether fanciful or purely graceful, I try to achieve surface quality, good design, and coherent form. I like function. My work is functional or follows functional form.
My methods of craftsmanship include the traditional and the unorthodox. I make a piece that is sturdy, using means best suited for that design. A sketch usually begins the physical process but evolution determines the final statement. I strive to create objects that exist to be viewed, touched, respected, and cherished.
