Artist's Statement: "I love transforming plain, hard metal - whether stainless steel, bronze, brass, copper, or steel - into beautiful and strong, lyrical and moving works of art. In the design stages, I seek to pull out from within a personal, spiritual expression; and as I work and rework the physical forms in the studio, I'm striving to create sculptures that have strength, composition, quality, craftsmanship, and depth. This combination of inward seeking and outward making, if I succeed, results in something that touches the viewer. In my studio, found objects taken from local junkyards and steelyards are recycled - transformed into mythical, musical, sculptural forms. Stainless steel, steel, brass, bronze and copper are hammered, pounded, bent, welded and polished until the work becomes the art. A finished sculpture is placed on its base, and it begins its own existence. The sculpture's purpose is to touch the viewer. When this happens, the sculptor has succeeded. The process changes from working to resting, and for that piece, suddenly, the artist is no longer needed. The finished sculpture invites the viewer to reach out, and touch back."
