Working in my Santa Fe studio allows me the opportunity to explore, experience and satisfy my insatisable curiosity.

My favorite question is "what if?” I use it daily to discover my imagery.

All of the necessary art education from fine institutions serves me well. Teaching keeps my art fresh and alive. If I didn't continue to grow as an artist, then I wouldn’t have anything productive to say to my students.

All of my life I’ve been an artist but I’m still hard pressed to categorize my work. Although I started out in sculpture, I soon found that I was yearning to take on new challenges. I have painted, assembled collages, created wood and bronze sculptures and explored printmaking. My art now begins with what I learned from all of these adventures.
