 Artist Statement



During sixteen years of working with mallet, chisel and wood, my eyes opened gradually to the majesty and the extraordinary beauty of wood.  Through this amazing medium I pay tribute to the nobility of everyday life.


These sculptures, formed by hand, are witnesses to my evolution as an artist and human being.  Through them I have serenely learned to comprehend and accept the different facets of life.  Along the way, I walked arm-in-arm with the mother, daughter, beggar and the ascetic through turbulent and calm waters in their quests for justice and peace for humanity.


I am truly honored to be part of the art world and to use its language to crystalize moments in time.
