I decided early on that it was more important to me to constantly grow and push my aesthetic boundaries, than to fit nicely into a specific category. I am probably best known for my American Indian subjects. Very quickly the spiritual philosophy and artistic temperament of this culture resonated powerfully with my heart. My primary focus still resides with this subject, but what really drives me, is to understand why people do what they do. The American Indian serves me well as a noble, global representative of humanity. I have created various series of 'matrix' patined stone designs, children, and even large scale fruit, not to mention monumental commissions of varied subject matter. This approach to 'freely creating' art may or may not be comfortable for some but, because I intend to be here for a long long time, it definitely works for me.
