Artist Statement

There is a language in sculpture created by hands, heart and head. I look for the poetry in sculptural forms. My work is done in series, which allows for endless variations. In addition to being a sculptor I create mosaic murals for public and private spaces. Murals are an extension of my desire to have art become a transformative force outside the realm of galleries and museums.
