  • DESCRIPTION: "My works are expressions of those things in life that bring us joy, pleasure, comfort, and something of mystery. I focus on the quiet beauty of everyday objects in the home to the most powerful expression of life, the human form itself. Everyday objects shown in a new light can awaken our memories, or with objects from other cultures-- inspire a view to a world that we may have only seen through books or film. With the human form, I hope to bring glimpses of real and imaginary personalities in moments of reflection and reverie, at play, or asserting the sum of their view of life.<BR><BR> It has been my constant goal to create works that stimulate a "conversation" between the viewer and the figures or objects within my works. As the creator of the works, I suppose I am in some way present in these "conversations", which allows me to share something of myself with the world around me."
