I spent twenty-five years in fine art photography and arts education at the college level. However, I was leaning toward sculpture as far back as graduate school at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
When I left teaching in 2000, I devoted most of my energy to sculpture. The work has progressed rapidly, including installations. Recently, I have expanded into print-making.
There seems to be a recurring direction in my work that concerns questions related to philosophy. If it were necessary to apply a label, perhaps it lies at the intersection of minimalism and conceptualism. The works have minimalist physical qualities in a variety of materials. What I find challenging is that the idea dictates the material and the medium in a constant exploration of the unknown.
I believe the thought process is a continuous movement, and art created is a manifestation of that movement. Although uniquely varied, each piece relates to its predecessors. I see the evolution of my work as fragments moving along a straight line.
