Like many artists, art chose me, rather than my having chosen art: making is what my life is about. My own work is an interdisciplinary process ascending from an undergraduate degree in architecture (earned during a paramedic career, raising a family, and building a home in the remote woods of western Maine) combined with graduate studies in sculpture and the color relationships of painting.

"While walking to and from a remote home I built in the Western Maine woods, I often wondered if rules of architecture could be broken to make sculpture. And frustration in computer aided architectural design became motivation for working a diversity of materials with my hands. Today, my work embraces the tension found between modern materials with a machine aesthetic and allowing indications of the human hand to remain. Rather than object or volume, I’m more interested in qualities of space defined by structure and color."
