 Artist Statement

​I employ the elemental qualities of wood, metal, and the absence of light to create a window for the viewer to enter into a symbolic vision of my reality. A place of contemplation and spaciousness. My highly geometric, meticulously crafted work intimates three-dimensional volume without the use of three point perspective. Working with two basic shapes—the square and the hexagon—I create works that are simultaneously complex and minimal, formal and formless. Alluding to architecture, meditation and the science of optics, these wall hanging sculptures explore both the conceptual and experiential nature of space.
