My sculptures are an exploration of the creative potential that exists in the continuously changing shapes, structures and dynamic geology of the landscape. Through observation and consideration of the power of natural forces to create perpetual change, I have made use of weights, rhythms and relationships found in natural materials to deconstruct the energy and power that carves and reshapes the land through irrepressible internal and external forces.
