I believe a regard to the spiritual, or at least a sensitive awareness is always somehow
inherent in everything I create. My sculptures often suggest narratives. Attitude and gesture
imply a host of scenarios that both resonate with the viewer on a personal level, and stimulate
their imagination to realms beyond their own experiences.
