Artist Statement

I belong to a baby boomer generation that believed it would never grow old. But now, having worked in my studio going on six decades, I have learned that experience and maturity have made me a better person and a more insightful artist.

My preferred endeavors over my career span have been making sculpture, collage and installation art. The use of objet trouve along with artist-fabricated components results in artworks that are once familiar and strange. I always strive for a harmonious visual balance, and my desire is that any narrative implied remain open-ended.
