Artist Statement

Creativity is my passion.  It is spontaneous and limitless.  For this reason the work I create varies from functional to architectural to sculptural.   My approach to working starts with an idea.  Then I work through that idea leaving the process open to “happy accidents” which lead to other possibilities.  The results are products of my ideas, experiences and the serendipitous nature of the creative process.

The monolith series deals with the concept of change. In a world that is constantly in flux we, as people, try to maintain a sense of stability. We must continuously adjust, adapt and transform to preserve our notion of stability. Therefore, there is a dynamic that plays out in life; one most change or be in motion in order to remain on stable ground. When we are stuck in a rut we become unhealthy, sick or full of dis-ease. We must continuously go through a cycle of renewal, death and rebirth. 

Thus the monolith series also deals with things that move in cycles. Monolith: Shine is representing day, summer and the high points in life. As we know the night, the winter and the low points are bound to come our way too.
