My work moves freely down two parallel paths: one that evokes the natural world and another that has its focus on the human condition.  These paths often converge and cross with the resulting work relating to our interaction with nature.

My installations and sculptures are akin to riddles -- I give hints as to content but much is left to viewer interpretation.  I like to keep the viewer thinking, “ I think that I know, n mm  m  I think that I understand.”  It is of utmost importance to me that the viewer thinks and makes a personal interpretation of the installation. If my work provokes thought and participation beyond the visual impression, I have achieved the desired reaction.  While my work doesn’t surrender meaning easily, I believe it delivers a clear message to the observer who seeks to relate to it as a participant rather than as a casual viewer.
