My creative work focuses on a sense of place. It involves the vernacular landscape and narrative storytelling in sculpture. Ideas such as boundary, horizon, architecture and material-use figure strongly in the works I create. Although the compositions read independently, each seems to be taken from a collective existence. Individual objects may appear fragmentary and pragmatic, derivations on the familiar places and objects that become obscure in our daily routines. The work does not pretend to stylish sophistication. I allow the pieces to evolve rather than force them into a predetermined notion of art making. My objective is to achieve a harmonious union of craftsmanship, poetics, and material integrity.

I remember the first sculpture I ever did, it was a duck
