ARTIST STATEMENT
My art represents my regard for the sacredness of the wood as a raw material with unlimited potential. In my work I strive for a greater understanding of beauty and of the deepest fears and dreams that emanate from the core of my human existence.

My goal is to create objects that help others to expand their concepts of beauty and to connect with feelings that lead to a greater understanding and appreciation of what is possible.
