Artist Statement

The challenge and opportunity of my artwork is embedded in the medium I have chosen: LEGO. Rarely is the acceptance and interpretation of an artist’s work so influenced by the medium they have chosen. A painter may choose acrylic or oil paint and achieve a different effect, but a sculptor who chooses LEGO instead of clay is committing to an entirely different pursuit. LEGO bricks are so deeply associated with creativity and whimsy that the medium itself loads art with new meaning. My pieces embrace this challenge by incorporating contemporary design with this playful medium. The result allows my pieces to be appreciated on multiple levels.
