Statement

I often feel like Alice in “Through the Looking Glass” as I design my work and use the sandblast process. There is always a sense of wonder and surprise as each creation unveils itself to me.

I am fascinated by the three-dimensional quality of imagery and light that can be created with layering design on plate glass and mirror.

For me there is always a sense of transformation involved working with any sort of glass. It is both solid and liquid simultaneously, moving and still.  Clear becoming opaque.

Working with mirror is especially exciting as it always includes the viewer as part of the art.

The human footprints we leave on our planet, the effect of plant, animal, and geologic forces through time and space.  Earth, Air, Fire and Water. 

My background in Anthropology, martial arts, my interest in global environmental issues and science, find expression through my work.
