Artist's Statement
" "
I started sculpting while studying art at Goddard College in Vermont. Personal tragedies prevented me from completing my college education but my love of sculpture never died. Originally I worked in a number of mediums including plaster, cement, fiberglass, and plastic. Over the years while pursuing my day job in information technology I wanted to create more than bits and bytes. Today I work in welded steel and my theme are predominately representational flora. My flowers are simple and designed to bring a smile while trees are more complex, large and ambitious. However, I am always aware of the emotions and conundrums of daily life and am expanding my work to asking universal questions and displaying emotion. Since my return to art I have been sculpting steadily for the last 6 months. Devoting full-time to my work is increasing my vocabulary.   I pursue my craft at my home studio in the Portland area.

The interpretation of this piece speaks of ambiguity. Is the Alma seeking escape or entry. Is it possible that there is simply comfort in being?

I call my figures in my sculptures "Almas", which is Spanish for souls. The Almas are in context offering interesting questions, clichés, and emotions which are sometimes obvious and sometimes not.
