Statement:
“I have had an ongoing interest in the physical and aesthetic possibilities inherent in many materials. Never subservient to one technique, I have explored and exploited several methods and mediums with an eye for discovery and expediency. Although my thematic concerns have changed over the years, my interest in how process shapes and informs the work has remained constant.”
