Artist Statement

My work is there for the viewer to quietly contermplate. My admiration for the work of Morandi with his courage to draw and paint quiet, mundane objects has inspired my subject matter and compositional approach. I share his fascination of observing such ob~ects and feel compelled to investigate the nuances in their relationships by creating my objects three dimensionally.
