Artist Statement:

The inspiration for my sculpture is based in my longstanding interest in paleontology and archeology; an exploration of how universal forms evolve and adapt.

I create sculpture that reflects the fluid and dynamic forms found in the natural world. My curiosity about how these forms developed and how different cultures perceive these forms is the driving force behind my work.

My work is often viewed as “fantasy” art. In actuality, I have very little interest in fantasy. The dragons developed more as a cultural interpretation  of archetypal reptilian forms rather than a representation of mythological creatures. The sculptures I build are diverse and encompass a wide range of richly organic forms.
