My work is narrowly focused on the emotional content of my characters. My goal is to allow the viewer to journey with my characters through the process of discovery. Stories happen on many levels, but my central goal is to push the emotional content hidden beneath the surface for the purpose of discovery beyond the basic storyline. My images are direct and simplistic in composition to provide clarity for the viewer.

My work in ceramics and sculpture for the past 35 years has centered on macro-level themes, progression, and patterns of human life. As time relentlessly moves forward, human society evolves, new and unfamiliar concepts emerge, and traditions are both revered and abandoned. These elements ebb and flow and enter and leave, and through it all, human life remains a constant. My work hones in on the various aspects of human life and explores related themes, but it also challenges them through presenting other contrasting ideas within the same work.

With a background in traditional design media, my creative processes now involve digital imaging, typography, and photography, utilizing emerging digital tools, processes, peripherals, and substrates. My view of design is that it’s a purposeful, systematic, and creative activity.

My most recent work is African inspired and multi-dimensionally composed of “hair picks” or motifs. These motifs become an assemblage of repeated multi-patterned and multidimensional layers of painted wood. It is important that each motif finds a
home in the composition that is not forced but naturally positioned.

Working with the figure, I am investigating composition and the application of paint while maintaining the drawing. My interest is
in the construction of the painting. I am exploring the quality of the surface and light, the abstraction and how the marks affect the painting. I am constantly intrigued with the components of a painting and its resolution.

My art is generally an expression or a visualization of an idea, story or commentary on myself and/or society. At times I am in the process of “creating to create” or designing with an intended goal in mind for the final product and/or client.
