Wood speaks to me. Bodies speak to me. They are both flawed, and reveal and conceal much of what lies within them. They may seem unharmed on the outside, but inside time, the environment, and the stresses of living are taking their toll.  In carefully choosing my materials, I discover their hidden language. The excitement of discovering that which is not apparent and then having to rethink, make mistakes, make new plans, leads me to wonderful moments of creativity.
