Art is ultimately just another way to find meaning and hope amid the unbearable facts of the world that surround us. Much of my recent work has drawn inspiration from traditions of religious woodcarving, African, indigenous Pacific Northwest, Medieval Catholic.  Drawing on these traditions, my work reflects my own struggles with the fears and hopes of the modern world. My work strives to reflect that struggle in a way that is unsentimental, but hopeful rather than nihilistic.
