Nature is my muse. She instills in me a visual vocabulary of endless possibilities that inform my aesthetics whatever form they take. All my pieces are sculptural studies—explorations of the structures, colors, patterns, and textures I encounter at the point where the material world intersects my naturalistic musings. From the early days of my childhood, the hills, orchards, streams and woodlands of that small New England town informed my artistic perspective. It is to the natural world that I retreat when I seek inspiration. In those still, quiet moments, my mind takes wing and soars as I dialogue with my Creator.
