“Some things are made just to be pleasing to the eyes. Others are made to cause one to dream, wonder and maybe even question. For me, working in wood is a wonderful combination of all these. There is a natural beauty in wood that can be exposed in different ways to show that beauty to others. In making the sculptural pieces my goal is to allow the viewer to use his or her imagination to search or question an emotion that comes to mind while enjoying the beauty of the piece. Some works are done to just be enjoyed by the eyes.”
