I express in my work the inherent structure and order found in nature. My sculpture presents forms in geometric compositions whose proportions and organization have been derived from mathematical formulae. My references come from basic, primal, fundamental images that transcend style or ethnic origin.
Currently my work includes the carving of city trees that have been cut down and will be discarded. I reuse the wood to give these beloved trees an extended life – now as sculpture. The carvings are inspired by and become a remembrance of the places from which they fell. The forms are the result of my ongoing exploration of growth patterns found in leaves, flowers, and human anatomy. I assemble these components into sculpture.
