My sculptures and prints are based on thoughts and events that
have had a strong impact on my life. Through serious contemplation
of my life's thoughts and events, I find myself aimed at expressing an
associated feeling. Every piece I create has an underlying emotion. I
rely upon these emotions in the creating process and it is my hope
that the completed piece will convey the same sense of emotion.
My process in working with a piece starts with certain emotions
which are consuming me at the present time. For example, if I
have been frustrated or stressed, I might take aggression out on a
piece by contorting and tearing the material that I'm using, or if I'm
feeling content, I usually have a gentle and meticulous reaction to a
material, whether it be steel, fiberglass, paper, etc.
I try to avoid the notion of a completed work or drawing
schematics for a piece. In the absence of these notions, I feel that
my response to certain elements and possibilities at hand may be
realized and my work may continue to evolve.
