Artist Statement

For 20 years, my main body of work has been an investigation of concepts of sex, death, and spiritual offerings, fabricated with a variety of materials. My most recent work has explored these themes via complex sculptural installations executed in glass, encaustic, and marble. I am currently working on a series of marble pieces inlaid with precious stones using the centuries-old Pietre Dura technique. I have used this combination of unique, rare materials and traditional technique to create a body of work that is substantial in both physical weight and symbolic significance.
