Artist’s Statment

“my work is always evolving in multiple directions. to what end i haven’t a clue. i am constantly compelled to make something. i receive ideas which germinate in my mind. the ones that take hold are expressed through various media. that used to be specifically painting, then mosaics. now i find my ideas are more suited to a multi-dimensional approach. sculpture and assemblage have also become strata for my personal iconography. i like to collect the majority of the material i use. in doing this, i’ve come to realize an affinity i have with the natural world. where ocean meets land in particular. a very dynamic and tumultuous place. constantly creating and destroying itself. very similar to my internal dialogue as a human and artist. stone, shell, fossil, bone, wood. all essential elements of this environment, as well as my current creative process. seeing them in their natural state, helps to inform the direction of my work. speaking to me organically, through size, shape, color, geographical context and history. the ideas for current and future projects are born here . . . . . ”
