artist statement

 My artistic process involves multiple layers of various types of plywood; usually birch and pine. 

I layer the plywood in a way that can be carved with power tools and carving knives into free standing sculpture, carved wall hangings, paintings with carved texture and jewelry. Another facet of my process is the painting. Carving and painting the many layers of wood allows me to combine two techniques I enjoy. 


My background in painting on walls for murals and faux finishing, also the concentration of years of figurative work has given me the experience to put two disciplines together.

  

For me the art I create is an ever evolving, very physical, and a deeply meditative process.
