Artist Statement


My sculpture is inspired by people: how they look, speak and act; how they endure travail and tragedy; how they celebrate joy. Some of my thematic concerns are about the choices people make and the choices made for them by history, by chance, by the intensities of their emotions and experience. These themes often involve individuals and families, and individuals alone in families.

It is an infinite terrain, the landscape of people: dramatic, full of vitality, sometimes painful, frequently funny, but always changing. I too am changed as I wander in these familiar and unfamiliar places with the tools of carving, molding and fabrication in hand.
