In pursuit of my individual truth, I create artwork to express my feelings. The sculptural process is an endeavor to create forms that touch the human spirit: stimulating others to find their own truth. In this way I am inviting the viewer to become a participant in absorbing personal interpretations. I believe that individuals view objects through their experiences. I hope to provide the viewer an opportunity to relate to their memories, and perhaps feel an experience in another perspective: creating new observations. Relative to the production of artwork, I believe that technology and creativity are effective when balanced.
