"In all my work, no matter what I create (whether in stone, wood, bronze, mixed media or paint), I am somehow narrating a 'story' - stories of deeper values of consciousness, magical, sacred aspects of inner life. I refer to 'sacred art' as art that enlivens subtle, more uplifting values in the awareness of the viewer.

Manifesting the form of a sculpture is only the final stage in the process of creation. The form evolves from a concept in the mind that is gradually transformed in my conscious awareness - layers of meaning, appearance, scale, medium, etc - until it consolidates into an image that is appropriate to manifest. My fulfilment as an artist is to witness this sequential unfolding of the creative process."
