These works are composed of wood, wire and other materials that have been used and considered worthless. Cuts, scratches and scars are conceptual and literal evidence of being alive. The subject of each sculpture is based on sheer desire. My work often has a Native American nuance, but not all pieces can be categorized as such. Conscious or unconsciously, my work tends toward eternal archetypes. I am interested in the human as a spiritual being burdened with reflective thought. Art that focuses solely on the intellect is of no interest to me. I find it impotent and prosaic.
I am heavily influenced by historical, cultural, and spiritual issues yet these topics may not be clearly evident in my art. Jungian psychology, William Blake poetry, Catholicism and a life long battle with depression are also part of my creative process. My world view is based on a fundamental belief in redemption.
