CHICKEN LITTLE (2005) - "As parents we are compelled to insulate and protect our children. While we can consume ourselves with the fear that the sky is falling; and try to cover every angle. I am aware that the threat may come from some unforseen place."


RESURRECTED(2007) In this piece I see a mother, a partner and a person coming of age. I see a mother giving her all for her offspring and perhaps holding it together just long enough for her children to fledge."


FINISHING MY THOUGHTS: KEEPING OUT THE SEEDS OF DOUBT (2006) "As individuals it is a constant challenge to stay true to ourselves. Our worlds are filled with a daily bombardment of influences, bot good and bad, that try to get in."


SANCTUARY (2007) "Inside I am still that little boy in his room, surrounded by toys. The center of an ever expanding universe. Are we trapped or are we free, and is it of our own choosing?"


NOT THE BRIGHTEST BULB (2005) "Deciding what to invest ourselves in is a constant challenge. We must pick and choose what to focus our limited time and resources on. There is always the danger of incubating something that can never hatch.


A LIFETIME (2003) "In this piece, the un-sprouted acorn and the fading leaf image represent the full range of life, from the promise of birth to the reality of our twilight."


CLUTCH (2005) "This piece was made as a cautionary tale to myself. The eggs in this piece are safe from the outside world, but if they fledge inside this protective womb, they will surely not be free."


ANNUAL RINGS (2006) "Like the rings in a tree, our lives are a build up of layers. Each encapsulating the previous year as the growing continues. But at our core, the little sprout remains."


GREAT EXPECTATIONS (2007)


BOWER BIRD (2007) "Bower birds embellish there nests with shiny objects and often times blue objects in an attempt to woo a mate. We, as humans, do very similar things."


BOWER BIRD: DETAIL


AROUND THE SON (2007) "Inside I am still that little boy in his room, surrounded by toys. The center of an ever expanding universe. Are we trapped or are we free, and is it of our own choosing?"


MEASURE OSF A MAN (2007) "In this piece glass matches, both burnt and unburnt, signify opportunities taken and not taken. The word search contains ten attributes that as a man I aspire to have. Or as someone searching for a partner, hopes to find."


MEASURE OF A MAN: DETAIL


PRECIUOS GIFT (2007) "A gift, a thank you, an apology..."


NAUTILUS PRESERVE (2008) "A portrait of a life. A build up of layers. What is apparent on the outside hiding what is within. Layers upon layers building up each year, each connected to the previous, but separate from the rest."


A PLACE FOR OUR TEARS (2006) "Tears of Sorrow, Tears of Joy."
