My figurative work is intended to reveal both physical space and mental places. It deals with the complexities of thoughts, ideas, feelings, and emotions that get compartmentalized. My images use lines and shapes to symbolize containers our bodies are placed in from conception to eternity. There is a hint at the landscape to ground the figure in space. The figurative paintings are mixed media using imbedded paper, drawings, and acrylic paint. The sculptures are resin and bronze, created in wax or clay and mixed media.
