Artist Statement

 

I encounter metaphors all around me in nature.  The seed writes science fiction, hinting to us what is to come.  An aspen forest holds infinite random patterns in black and white, awaiting interpretation on canvas.

When we can remain open and sensitive to the obvious -- to grace, really -- then beauty can speak to us every day.

I challenge myself to create unique, elegant objects for the home, to add a personal touch in these high-tech times.
