I was raised in rural Pennsylvania where vehicle travel is a way of life. While motoring, I reminisce about the light illuminating interior and exterior space, giving one the invitation to explore the content and the context of the passing forms. Light is not a part of our life; it is the core of our life, the center of life's energy. Light has a language of its own, involving reflection and refraction, properties that create a unique dimensional conversation, like the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis), one of nature's many environmental light shows, creating lines across the night's winter sky.
In essence, I am a sculptor of light. In my creative quest, I am captivated by the magical dialogue between light and form. Light is ephemeral, always changing. Its illumination composes in space, as it defines, reflects, refracts, bends, and teases the volume and mass of static forms. It’s this symbiotic relationship that I’m interested in exploring through my work.
