ART BELONGS TO ALL WHO APPROACH IT WITH A READINESS TO BE
CAPTURED OR "TAKEN IN" BY IT. ART HAS THE POWER TO AFFECT US,
TO TOUCH US,TO EMBRACE US IN ITS REPOSE,TO FILL US WITH THE
PEACE AND TRUTH IT CONVEYS THROUGH MATERIAL AND IMAGE.
IT CAN INVITE US, CAN LEAD US TO THE THRESHOLD OF THAT
MYSTERY WHICH NOURISHES ALL LIFE, HUMAN AND INANIMATE.

I REALIZE MY WORKS FROM MATERIALS CLOSE TO NATURE,
ESPECIALLY WOOD. THESE STRONG,NOBLE AND BEAUTIFUL
MATERIALS BLEND MOST INTIMATELY WITH THE RELIGIOUS, PERSONAL AND SPIRITUAL SUBJECTS FOUND AT HAND AND SUGGESTED BY
TRADITIONS OF EVERYDAY CULTURE AND THE CHRISTIAN GOSPEL.
