I was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, raised in Fitchburg, Massachusetts, achieved a BFA in Sculpture from Boston University, and now live and work in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.
For many years the themes of my work found their core in the many conflicts and harmonies found in duality. Life and death, the beautiful, the ugly, comfort and anxiety, the divine and mundane, they all embrace or battle in their search for balance. Each piece was a story taken out of context, born of a dream, and hammered into a half-life for the viewer to explore and identify with. I was swirling in a whirlpool of thoughts and emotions, grasping out at flotsam and jetsam, trying to stay above water.
These days, to keep centered, hopeful, and empathic, I choose to focus on things and experiences in my life that bring me joy, wonder, or a sense of the sublime. I work to share these feelings with the viewer through my art.
Anything a person experiences is filtered through their own mind and emotions. With that in mind, I work to capture an idea, presence, or emotion as honestly as I can for myself. When I reach a point where the object speaks to me, I share it, and enjoy the new lives, emotions, and stories the viewer brings to the object. The imagination inspired in others by my work is almost as fulfilling as the conception and making of the object. I hope that what I have made haunts and touches you as it has me.
