Artist Statement

The concept behind my works is the abstract expression of intimate space and emotion within personal relationships. Each sculpture expresses a glipmse into a personal space, capturing an intimate moment, frozen in time.

It is my intent that the works evoke in the viewer memories of current or past relationships or dreams and hopes for their personal future. 

By stimulating in the viewer memories of personal experiences I hope to instantly involve them with the works, capturing their interest and encouraging interpretation and understanding of each piece.
