Artist Statement


Objects communicate on many levels, a table for example may be a convenient surface to set things down upon, it may be prized as a collectors item, or it may be a place for a family to share their lives.


As an artist I examine the quiet language of objects, the feelings and associations brought out by hand made things. Sometimes using traditions woodworking techniques, I try to place my work in the open transformational space between the functional and sculptural worlds.  This, I hope gives voice to the objects, eliciting questions and allowing personal associations to manifest, taking us away into our thoughts, and returning us to the richness of the object.
