ARTIST’S STATEMENT:
Art is alchemy. It is the transmuting of everyday materials into a magical new substance that only exists as a result of this particular recipe. Though most artists identify themselves by their medium, calling themselves “painter” or "sculptor," I don’t feel that way. For me, the creation of art is more than the exploration of a medium or technique; it is the creation of an image or object, the realization of a dream, and the solving of a puzzle. The medium I choose is dependent upon the best solution for each puzzle. Some pieces scream for a third dimension, some need the softness of watercolors, some the grit of cement or the gleam of polished metal.
