As a maker of things of one sort or another ever since my childhood, I would say the impulse to create is something wired into me at birth. Most of the work is three dimensional. Living in a three dimensional world I find it easier to talk about things I see and experience in a way that relates to the way I experience them. My goal is always to find the essence of my subject. While the appearance of the work may differ the impulse and inspiration behind it never wavers.
An avid gardener, I have become accustomed to viewing much of my subject matter in an up close and personal manner. Perhaps that is the reason for the abstract nature of the work. Yet, no matter how abstract an image is, it still references the original impulse.
To the right are some images from my gardens.
