Artist Statement

My current work reflects an evolution of form and expression, influenced by human gesture and architectural and social spaces. I am interested in making work that provokes a visceral response while maintaining a reverence for natural forms and a focused concern for the material, movement, and balance.

I think often of the likely state of the world when my children are my age, as compared to when I was their age. My gestural, fragmented and biomorphic abstractions poignantly reflect both beauty and this sense of potential loss.
