"One of the uniting elements that runs
throughout my work is the approach to form that is inspired by my early
training with my father carving stone. This carving experience helped to
instill in me a love for pure shape that is so beautifully illistrated
in ancient Greek sculpture. Not surprisingly, the Greek sculpture of the
Classical and Hellenistinc periods have a profound influence on my work
and continue to challenge and amaze me"
