To pursue the path of an artist is a statement in itself.
My sculpture is multi-faceted and varied. All of it starts conceptually and some of it stays there, but throughout I want my work to be pleasing to the eye, well put together and have good composition.
I passionately love the natural world and try to tread lightly on it. The materials I work with are often recycled, from trees I’ve selectively cut, from one of the barns I’ve taken down and saved from the landfill or rocks I’ve found. Along with the materials, I enjoy using my mind, hands and skills to creatively express thoughts or pay homage.
Though I’ve been accused of being an artist for years, most of my experience is as a woodworker, designer, craftsman and generally a creative person who’s been consciously gaining and honing skills and accumulating tools and materials that now help me to make sculpture.
