As a sculpting medium, the
essential mystery of wood, the knots and weathered grain of its
history, are the inspiration for my work.
My approach to the material is aggressive
as well as restorative.
I carve, cut and chip the layers
as a means to reveal the secrets within. Dividing the space
using lines and curves that in time become shapes, I feel an
affinity for the visual tension that transforms space
I approach this process of deconstruction
with an organic and spontaneous energy.
My work relates to
drawing, painting, collage and sculpture, and I use these as the
tools for navigation during the process of creation.
