Artist Statement

I fashion carved and painted bas-relief sculptures in wood, but identify more as a three dimensional painter than a woodworker. I do my underpainting in African mahogany with a chisel to add depth, shape and texture that you can touch. The weight, strength and grain of the wood adds life to my narratives.

I am also a storyteller. My father always told the most outlandish tales. We never knew whether he was telling the truth or not…..usually not.

Real life is colorful enough for me I use allegorical characters to tell real stories. Sometimes mine, Sometimes yours.
