My work is non-objective or existential, in that it exist for its own sake, an inner vision if you will. The exception to this would be the wood and mixed-media wall sculptures that take on a landscape feel. I have been influenced by many including Jean Paul Riopelle, Richard Diebencorn, Henry Moore,and William Woordsworth. Music has also been an important influence from Chopin, Rickard Strauss, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Lazy Mike, Bob Seger, the Eagles and many others. Mainly I just like to make things and share them with you.
