I am drawn to organic forms and patterns, to natural phenomena that the human eye and spirit responds to as both fresh and timeless. Nest, egg, scale, branch, vein, river, bone and stone: As Isamu Noguchi declared “I keep looking for different ways to say the same thing.” I know I’ve gotten it right, when different people identify a breadth of imagery in the same piece.

“That reminds me of coral,” one exclaims, while another sees lacy stinkhorn and still another sees blood vessels. Art is a process and a practice of consideration and revelation and it is my dearest hope that the process will continue in the lives of those who use and enjoy my work.
