Artist Statement
The visual impressions of today’s media ridden culture, can be precarious and invasive to the human spirit.

For this artist in my wanderings, there is a perpetual observance. Natural and human beauty dominate basic inspiration and resulting forms. The sense of movement that motivate these forms and creatures of my fantasy, possess a poetic intention of spirit.
A sculpture rarely has a universal message yet is able to give solid evidence of thought.

Strong, dramatic tempests in the seasons and life, unlock the door of my imagination in abstract form... for the moment.
