Artist Statement

I never copy myself or anyone else. In over 40 years, I have made more than 540 sculptures and no two are the same.
Einstein said: “More important than knowledge, use your imagination”. To that, I have added curiosity, invention and sudden flashes of insight that strike in the middle of the night. I have used every conceivable material, including sticks, stones, bones, crystal, glass, bronze, aluminum, and steel. When creating, I enter another level of being. If you stand back and watch me, you will see me constantly in motion, looking and working on all sides, at all times.
