My sculpture is inspired by the connection of the human form to nature venturing towards abstraction. I use natural materials, stone, wood and metal to bring to life organic forms moving through space. The delicate translucency of calcite or the heavy trunk of oak dragged from the woods, both present unique technical and creative opportunities to reveal the spiritual nature of the material and to make visible our deep human connection to the environment.
