“I am a sculptor and naturalist living Matfield Green, Kansas in the the heart of the Flint Hills – the largest tract of tall grass prairie in the world.
My work is primal in spirit – guided by desire to understand and celebrate our place in the world. My inspiration comes from the prairie, love of nature, and conviction that our humanness is an integral part of it.

As I walk about the prairie and tend to our forty acres of grassland I gather sticks, stones, bones, wire and remnants of human habitation. Like the native pack rat, I then return to the studio to store, array, and get to know these findings – their inherent beauty, evocative power, and potential for interesting and structural relationships with other materials.
I fit these finds together with the ultimate goals of visual delight and power to awaken distant memories, stories, and feelings.”

The Flint Hills of Kansas are revealed by coloring every square mile with a road on four sides – the grid of dirt roads and tilled fields. What’s left over is the largest tract of tall grass prairie on the planet – an interesting place to live.
