When I work in my studio I am on a quest for three things.

1.  Concept and Metaphor:    My subjects consider how we interact with each other and the various environments in which we exist.

2.  Construction:   I look for ways to combine different materials into an object.   I construct using some combination of wood, metal, wire, canvas, plaster, paper and found objects.   I want my work primitive,  obviously made by hand,  so I use visible connections between materials such as sewing or nailing.

3.  Color:   Paint can create illusion on the dimensioned, physical object.   I use acrylic paint to generate energy through color interactions and rhythms.
