My objective, through the use of sculptural forms, is to evoke the spirit of ancient eras and natural realms.
I am infatuated with psychology and eastern philosophy. Through this fascination I have been led to believe that perhaps the most fundamental and challenging part of life is to attain self-awareness and find our true, unique paths to fulfillment.
Working intuitively, I refer to prehistoric tools to create metaphorical devices that might help in the process of finding balance, center, and direction along our individually carved journeys.
