artist statement

Within the concentric growth rings of trees is a record of their entire existence. By identifying with their struggles, successes, growth and eventual decay, I am drawn to these materials that help me explore the complex relationship between nature and mankind.  My work is a means to access this connection.  
Using hundreds and sometimes thousands of individual pieces of wood, my work is created. Each piece is carefully selected based on its physical characteristics and refined to fit the overall composition of the form.  Through this meditative process, I honor the individual contribution each piece makes to the whole and how when put together, the many pieces take on a new identity.
