I
t has been said that I paint with clay. Rather than putting paint to canvas, I use clay and glazes to create images. Clay enables me to experiment with a variety of textures. It gives my work a certain edge and permanency.

My work is unique and difficult to fit into any niche. While paintings are traditionally two dimensional and sculptures are three dimensional, my work contains elements of each. While it may not be possible in the scientific sense, or in the language of art speak, my work is a reflection of a zone that exists between the second and third dimensions. This zone is not only reflected in the physical elements of my pieces, but also in the subject matter.

My portraits, for example, seldom portray the subject engaging in a particular activity. Instead, they offer a representation of the subject somewhere between being totally at rest (flat, without affect, thought or concern), and actively engaged (be it in conversation or physical activity...that very moment which separates indifference and action. It is revealed in the facial expression that suddenly emerges from certain stimuli. It commonly occurs while one is calmly reading a newspaper or book, listening to music, people watching, or listening to someone speak. That moment of awareness in which ones interest is sparked and their facial expression and body language reflexively reveal their position in the spectrum of human thought and emotion. That look of fear, confusion, excitement, resentment, suspicion, happiness or sadness that is communicated without the benefit of speech, and which often precedes a corresponding action. The observer knows to engage or avoid, offer comfort or ignore, approach or retreat.
