Artists Statement

I often question the need to make art, the compulsion to create imagery and the attempt to articulate fleeting ideas and concepts.

It is certainly a frustrating activity requiring large amounts of time, energy and creativity - often with dubious results!

I only know that I must do it, that it would be wrong not to and I am almost certain that in this life-time I will never be able to answer why this is so.

One of the strongest influences for me is the landscape, or more specifically the landscape as animate, sentient, as being aware.

Anthropomorphism seems natural; how my ancestors saw divinity all about them, as close, palpable, terrifying and magnificent at one and not removed to a far off realm called Heaven or Paradise.

It is why I venture into the mountains, canoe on the rivers and sea, ski, cycle the back roads and trails, as a form of communion as well as simply enjoying these outdoor activities.

Making a piece of sculpture is a further manifestation of this relationship, a statement of my fascination of elemental forces.
