ART FROM THE EPHEMERAL REALM
"it has been said of my work that it contains a strong narrative. Each piece does reveal a story and each story has in infinite degree of source. I am a voracious reader, a student of mankind's mythologies, and an eternal seeker of knowledge. I believe there is more to existence than the everyday, there is the other worldly, the imaginative, and the spiritual. The Arts dwell within this ephemeral realm, without definition, enhancing our lives, simply because they exist. Questions abound about my work: wings, exaggerated musculature, unusual surface and form treatment. I sculpt for myself. it is my passion. Not all of you will understand, to those of you who do, I say, "Enjoy.""
