Artist Statement

My work is perhaps best described as abstract expressionism, as I love to dabble in non-ordinary reality. The work I produce often references that of Henry Moore, Jean Miro and the great jazz artists of the fifties and sixties.

I have been working with wood in various ways for over 40 years. I am a self- taught carpenter who progressed to cabinet making and now I design and produce contemporary studio furniture, sculpture and mobiles.. I have recently begun to explore the possibilities of a new medium: metal. I have found this work adds fantastic new dimensions of motion and rhythm as well as the opportunity of using my sculptures outdoors.

I am a former Detroiter, who now lives in semi-rural Bath, Michigan where I am currently developing a private sculpture garden
