My work is often influenced by my preoccupation with the meaning of "house," a reflection of my many years as an architect. Our homes remain a reflection of the manner in which we occupy the earth. We have the opportunity to alter our intimate living space more easily than we seem to change our lives. I am interested in questions of life rituals, of dreams, and memory, related to the house archetype. Utilizing symbolic realism I am exploring the themes of personal desire and human need in relation to the place of "home."
