My sculptures are characterized by my background in architecture as well as an experimental, playful imagination. I always think of my sculptures as constructions, like architecture, made of  a number of familiar materials joined in a craftsmanlike way, creating space. In all my work, the form is determined by the structure. As Robert Campbell described my work in The Boston Globe (10/25/94), "....These can be almost teaching tools, because they're so successful at making visible the hidden forces of tension and compression."The work is always abstract and geometric, exploring the relationship between simplicity and complexity. It is pared down to its essential elements as in the mathematical principle of Occam's Razor.Indoors and out, I work in a wide range of scales and materials, both natural and processed. In my site-specific work, I intend that the art be integrated into its social and architectural environment, and to be both challenging and accessible.
