I am an expressive sculptor. I have no preconception of a sculpture before beginning work on it. I start with a single selection of metal that joins others to eventually become a completed piece. This process and the thoughts going through my mind as the sculpture is developing become what each work is about: the sculptures emerge from my aesthetic sensibilities and are interpretations of and reflections on my own life, relationships, and the human condition in general.
In a new series of work using scrap metal from New York and animal bone found in the high desert of New Mexico, the sculptures bring together two places that have strong personal connections. These materials represent contrasting worlds and feelings, yet both materials are, in their way, natural discard from their environments.
