ARTIST STATEMENT

Seeking graceful clarity of line, I search for the abstract sculptural form within the malleable material I shape.  My work is a meditation and an exploration, as well as a manipulation.  I probe for the most elegant simplicity, transforming the material manually into the organic and curvilinear forms that I love - my visual poems.
