Studio Description:

My work is rooted in a tempo or mood that I think comes from some combination of my personality and my interest in nature and biology. Spending the past several years in central Pennsylvania has been wonderful in this regard; I spend a lot of time in the woods, hiking and looking for mushrooms. The variety and diversity of life that I encounter finds its way into my work. By giving my work just some of the basic qualities of life–a sense of movement, growth, and breath—the pieces develop presence and take on unique personalities and trajectories.
