These sculptures are explorations and meditations on my relationship to nature, family, and life with hopefully just a bit of humor and whimsy. Most are made of cut, carved, nailed, screwed, glued, and painted wood with a few other materials thrown in here and there.

 Fish Story," at right, was inspired by time I have spent kayaking on the ocean of Kauai, and many close encounters with sea creatures large and small. It's about the feelings a person has in such an encounter- surprise, wonder, fear- but also about what the animal may be thinking. As in a "fish story" in which the fish becomes bigger than the truth, and gets bigger each time the story is told, I felt the fish represents those things that dwell in the depths- of the ocean but also our minds and hearts- that sometimes seem larger and more frightening than they really are. This piece was an entry in a local group exhibition in which each work was made from a 2"x 4"x 8' piece of lumber. Winner of the Judge's Award in that show, the piece now resides in the Netherlands (Thank you Niek!).
