Statement

My father gave me my first toolbox when I was four.  He cleared the trees from the land that he bought from my grandmother, then used the wood from the trees to build the house that I grew up in.  Before I was fourteen, we had built five boats together.  The process that I engage in with my sculpture today begins with wood and with skills that I learned as a child.  From there, I add whatever material will best communicate the idea.  In recent years I have used a wide variety of materials, including polyester, bronze, steel, aluminum, ceramic, paper, and stone.  I am very excited about the current direction of my work.  I am enjoying both the scale and the combination of materials in the recent installation-oriented pieces.  My intent is to continue to produce large-scale pieces.  By using materials with more durability these pieces can exist in public spaces.
