"I have a love of old buildings that have a unique character all their
own, almost a personality. I would like to capture that sense of wonderment
felt when entering a museum or library; the feeling of reflective quiet
and awe when entering a church or cathedral; the curiosity or voyeuristic
thrill at seeing something not intended to be see, that fly on the wall.
"The resulting works are multimedia constructions comprised of wood,
glass, masonite, lights, oil paint and a variety of other materials. Combining
my love of painting and working with wood and tools, I am creating three-dimensional
pieces that are part architectural, part sculptural and part painted illusion.
"I am striving to develop pieces that work on many levels, a visual
journey that starts with the exterior and then draws the viewer into the
interior to discover yet another visual experience. I want these small
environments to draw the viewer back again and again to explore and reflect."
