“My pieces are typically narrative, working mainly with figurative elements and symbolic objects. Much of my current work is influenced by mans’ relationship with nature, as well as his impact upon nature. I find faces and hands to be very beautiful and expressionistic, a source of silent communication, and I use gestures and titles to help convey an overall story. My pieces are usually about communication with self, or between others.”
