Kneeling beside my daughter, I found myself drawing simple, sidewalk-chalk doodles.  While she worked on her own compositions, my web of patterns grew across our stoop.

These intuitive, circular patterns soon found thier way into my studio, ending up on the surface of my sculptures and drawings.  The drawings continue to evolove, moving from simple compositions to newly introduced subject matter.  Most recently, I am exploring a drawing-to-drawing whimsical story narrative.  I am currently dealing with themes that showcase alarm, emergency, new beginning and hope.
