I sculpt because it is a joining of my passions.  The forms integrate architecture, music, and nature.  I do not try to imitate nature.  I conceive my sculptures as a parallel creative process.  Insight gained during the creation of each work provides the inspiration for the next.   I continue to search for expressive relationships as of yet unexplored.  I work with the materials, history, and geography of the Great Lakes region, while seeking to communicate universal themes. The meaning of the work is encoded in the physical properties and formal relationships experienced by the viewer
