"After 37 years of potting, it is still a daily act of exploration and daring. I know I’m making strong work when I have the joyful experience of the finished piece staring back at me as if I had nothing to do with it being there. Of course, it has taken over three decades of devotion to make my current work and I have explored many pathways. Much theorizing over these years about my inspirations have led me to simply understand that I am a good man who works hard at making something ever more beautiful and original. I live in the sticks of Maine and nature has drowned me in her magnificence.
My goal as an artist is to generate the energy that creates the space for myself and the viewer to expand freely. I see this as a way of life and the definition of a peaceful and vibrant society."
