I enjoy questions more than answers. Questions leave room for exploration and a continuation of thought whereas answers are a mental dead end. In my work I utilize contrast in form, surface, or material, to spark intrigue in the viewer. As a result my sculptures have an inherent complexity that causes viewers to question how and why the various elements relate and creates a starting point for further investigation.
