It is a mystery…..
……..that an artwork can capture a moment of beauty and communicate that memorable instant to another person, especially when that other person is usually a complete stranger. But such is the power of art: that thoughts, ideas, and emotions can be conveyed from one individual to the next.
So I try to communicate my love of the natural world to others, and seek to remind myself, along with my audience, that there are many things which are striking in their loveliness. I believe that the gentle curve of a leaf is as powerful as the span of an arch, and the colors of a flower can be as terrific as the sunset. That is why I use steel with its unyielding strength, and glass with its delicacy, to make something reminiscent of the organic, of something that is growing.
And my hope is that all who see my sculpture will be reminded of those intimate moments when we find joy in the most unlikely of places—all around us.
