About the Artist

    I am a self taught artist. Growing up in Maine as an outdoorsmen I found myself being inspired by the glacial erratics that are ubiquitous In the trout streams and ponds of our state.

     Using the material as the starting point in developing form, each piece is as individual as the stone that I begin with. I bring aesthetic rigor with a passion for minimalism to find something beyond and within the material itself.

ARTIST STATEMENT

    The act of creating is an attempt to understand connections. They can be between the conscious and the unconscious, personal and public, intellectual and emotional, or almost anything, perceived or not perceived.

    There is also the relationship between idea and concept, mind and body, body and tool, tool and technique upon medium and project to place, which are constantly layered over the reasons for creating within the process of doing.

    Artists work through these connections to give themselves and the world glimpses of possibilities as to how things fit into our world.

    For me that process is important. Having a plan that allows for discoveries to be made and acted on along the way that will enlighten and enliven the result is one of the reasons I find great joy in my work. It is also a tool to keep me present within the process. I believe creation happens only in the present. The past and future are tools to help us fully focus on the here and now.
