Artist Statement

My artwork follows the chaotic workings of my mind. It emerges into life in a variety of mediums, sizes, formats, but it is all tied together by a deep appreciation of nature. I am best known for my three-dimensional work and detailed pen & ink drawings which depict a conceptual interpretation of reality. My work exemplifies an appreciation of nature, animals and the human form. Three-dimensional works are expressed primarily in plaster and found objects. Other mediums include watercolor, beading, acrylic, graphite and colored pencil.
