Creating art is a walkabout

I am an assemblage sculptor and seasoned recycler working primarily in wood.
Finding discarded but to me very interesting pieces is the grist for my art mill and the inspiration for a new creation. I refer to this as re-incarnation.
Each piece has a voice that sometimes speaks to me quickly or may take months, years before that “eureka” moment happens. But either way, the process is exciting and evolves. My latest intent is to involve the viewer in the art by making two or three part pieces that can be rearranged. Most pieces are painted but sometimes left natural.

I graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston where I also worked toward and received a fifth-year traveling fellowship. I have exhibited in many galleries in Maine and Massachusetts with works in private collections.
