Much of my artwork, although abstract, is landscape based.
I grew up in western Canada where the Rocky Mountains hover on the horizon and the Native American tribes produce colorful art.
For many years I have lived in Saratoga Springs, NY which lies in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains. Both of these places have had a very powerful influence on my works.
In the first part of my career, I was a painter.
When Sculpture became my focus, three dimensional forms and the natural color of the materials interested me. Some of my sculptures have a sound component. However, after many years of fabricating sculpture, the surfaces of the work beganbeckoning me to use them in a different way. Since I had always been drawn to the look of printing plates, I started engraving and using ink and paint to enliven the surface of free standing sculpture and artwork for the wall.
