Artists Statement: 

All my works are sculptural studies - explorations, if you will, of where the material world of my daily life intersects my naturalistic musings. From the early days of my childhood, the hills, orchards, streams and woodlands of my small New England home infused my aesthetics. It is to that natural world that I retreat when I seek inspiration. In those still, quiet moments, that my mind takes wing and soars as I dialogue with my Creator.
