I have been intrigued with connecting common still life objects to columns, tables, posts, etc, to present these items as both sculpture and monument. The old cemetery that abuts my property has head stones and obelisks that are simple and direct. These monuments, and the architectural forms, details and materials used in our early 19th century home and studio have influenced and inspired my work. The timbers used in the building, the joinery, the textural quality of plaster and lath and the way these materials receive light are all part of what I respond to.
