I am an artist from northern Maine. I grew up very close to nature, in potato farming country. I have made art for as long as I can remember. I discovered my affinity for clay while completing my BFA at the University of Maine at Presque Isle. I have identified myself as a sculptor ever since.
My intuitive process reveals the rippling patterns, cavities, and grooves that make up nature’s organic language of form. These ambiguous beasts evoke a duality of environments and inhabitants, alien and familiar forms, beauty and ugliness, internal and external worlds. My sculptures capture the visual, material, and spiritual makeup that unite us all as one in nature. Man and animal, flora and fauna, invertebrates and minerals alike, we’re all made of the same components. My work declares all the forms and materials of nature as sacred and alive as us human beings.
