MY VOICE : Discoveries and Beliefs

I am an architect. My architecture explores space and symbology, translating these components into built form that has meaning and content—and, if successful, tells stories about the values and beliefs of the people for which I build. Creating architecture is not only making containers for activity, but is a way for a People to speak to future generations—creating places that reflect the values of a time and leaving messages for those that follow.

My work in bronze began as a continuation of my exploration in form that I have experienced in creating architecture—not imposed form, but imagining how natural processes might sculpt the earth to reveal images and stories that can be discovered. As with architecture, I have learned that the power of a piece of sculpture lies in its ability to engage—enabling the visitor to enter into a dialog with the piece, seeking meaning that transcends the first impression. As my explorations have evolved, I have moved from abstraction to more realism while empowering each work with a “soul” that tells a story of why it is what it is.

These sculptures and accompanying narratives embody the discoveries and beliefs that have given form to my life. The medium of bronze has become my way of storytelling—my way of passing on learned values and an ethos of living to those that will follow. This is MY VOICE.
