Artist Statement
I grew up on my grandfather's farm in northern Ohio where I helped in the
fields and with the livestock. My other grandfather took me into the woods to hunt
and onto the lake to fish. Solitary hours in the fields, woods, and on the lake
provided ample opportunity to ponder the beauty and power of nature. The
ordered beauty of crop rows and the concentric ripples on water's surface made an
impression on me. Coupled with a religious upbringing, my faith embraces the
notion of a universe created and sustained by a supreme being. A degree in physics
fuels my inquisitive nature and reinforces my astonishment at the intricacies of life
and the physical processes that drive our universe.
