Artist’s Statement: 
"Currently I’ve found myself returning to the human figure in sculpture. There is a quiet intimacy to the relationships these figures portray in life’s personal moments. 

In my paintings I use the gesture of structure and the paint to emphasize the incongruities of mind. These thoughts, like the open form of the work itself, play out in a free form manner engaging their surroundings without the constraints of the traditional picture framed view."
