Artist Statement

Inventing abstract figurative imagery is my calling, and for fifty years I’ve been obsessed with creating surreal narrative bronze and cast stone sculptures, pen and ink drawings, photographs, and most recently assemblages. My joy is in creating whimsical, anthropomorphic creatures that lend themselves to scenario. My art is archetypal, exemplifying Karl Jungs theory of the universal creative unconscious. I model my sculptural imagery intuitively, the forms only dictated by their armatures, instinctually creating motifs that reflect my own unique and personal style. Recently my passion turned to sculptural assemblages. I’m uniting doll parts with locally sourced tree roots. Dolls are models of us, and the whirls and limbs of tree roots are reminiscent of human lines and appendages. Symbolically, the aesthetic merging is a logical union since we, like trees, are organic and share the cycle of life. Finally, in my book, Gods for Future Religions available on Amazon, I present my sculpture as a narrativevisual collection in a Jungian parable with each sculpture playing a starring archetypal role.
