Sculptural Painting allows me to combine a mix of materials, such as wood, metal, canvas or paper, with the illusions of a painted surface. My objects are built to look handmade. Primitive connections between materials, for example sewing or nailing, draw attention to the details of a piece. My mind has always embraced color, even frivolously attaching it to numbers.

In my work I use movement, real or implied, to see a subject more clearly. I work with subjects I see daily: money, the environment, or a specific place. The familiar is usually the main character in my pieces, a human presence is secondary, one element of the environment, rather than a central subject.
