Artist Statement

My sculptures should give delight and mystery and cultural relevance.

My 18′ high sculpture for the Athens Library, with its angel and boy doing break-dancing,  gives delight and reinforces the library’s mission. My sculpture for the Isabel Gates Webster Park in Atlanta, commemorates her career as a judge and involves the children at the adjacent elementary school making ceramic tiles of their aspirations, and the sculpture is about human fulfillment. My sculpture for the Indian Creek MARTA Station recounts how early Native Americans lived. My sculpture for Atlanta’s  Rosel Fann Southeast Natatorium (with Kevin Cole  and Tony Loadholt) reinforces the basketball and swimming occurring at the Center. The sculpture which Harold Rittenberry, Jr.  and I did for the Fulton County Library at East Point commemorates the importance of mothers reading to their children. I have always worked to involve the adjacent community.
