"My studio practice centers on drawing and sculpture.

I believe that ambiguity is an asset and responsibility to visual imagery. It is my intent to create images that are not any one thing in the world. Ultimately I am striving to intensify the dynamic of the viewer by objectifying feelings that manifest themselves via individual and collective interaction with my work. 

My work is vaguely grounded in theoretical, figurative abstraction. I look for avenues that suggest past, present and future motion—wheels, spheres, bodily parts, liquids, molten substances. These works often segregate and blend motion in a suggested or real context. While posing the notion of movement, I find that an inherent grace and subtle humor often surfaces in the work."
