Artist Statement:
I enjoy creating art for the public environment.  The process is stimulating, and rewarding. 
Each project is different, presenting new thematic and spatial opportunities.  I enjoy the 
collaborative process. Having artwork placed in a public venue is very exciting in that it
becomes a important element of the entire project.  Knowing that a broad spectrum of
people will interact with the work on a daily basis over a long period of time is a vital
consideration in the design and execution of my work.  This allows the work to be
intuitively and non-verbally accessible while revealing deeper levels of discovery over
repeated viewing.  The fact that each project is different inspires me to continually test
new concepts, materials, and techniques.  It is very rewarding to have the opportunity
to share my work and experiences with the community.

"Rain Catcher"; from "Rain Garden, 
Broken Circle" Project

This project is inspired by the, "Renewed Life,"
that the Animal Shelters provides the pets that are
brought to it. The shape of the sculpture is derived
from plant forms, as plants and animals have an
intimate relationship in the environment.
The sculpture represents plants as seen from the
animal's perspective, looking up at very large forms.

"Running Dog"; from "Rain Garden, 
Broken Circle" Project

"Running Doc / Broken Circle," is a series of
sculptures placed in a circle around the
courtyard island. "Broken Circle," refers to the
interruption of the cycle of life for these animals.
In some cases this is permanent. The idea being
that once the animals are healed, they are
returned to the cycle to continue healthy and
fulfilling lives. The dogs are running in a
stop-action (inspired by Edward Muybridge's
"Running Dog" photo series. I wanted to capture
the sense of energy and spirit that these animals
posses.
