My work deals with connections; connections implied, inherent, and imagined between objects, ideologies, iconography, and materials.  Moreover, in a very literal sense, my work is centered on this very  notion of "connection":  nails, junctions, knots, appliques all form integral parts of each piece.

Building and the notion of construction have been constant lures since childhood.  
Sculpture and drawings are both constructed, and both always show traces of their
fabrication.  Materials are never specific; the works dictate their make-up as they mature.
