Over the course of my career I have been concerned with creating work that is drawn from elements found in nature, and the mechanical world. My hope is to highlight the similarities and differences of our experiences in the world by creating a “false nature” or nature re-created . I am interested in finding architectural order emerging from nature and translating that into sculpture. I am amazed how natural forms and structure relate to man made objects. My goal is to build pieces that are expressive, interesting and also have structural integrity and will withstand the elements. I build sculpture with a degree of uncertainty and spontaneity. I see it as a conversation with the piece I am working on. I am very process oriented, and these pieces grow and evolve as I continue to work on them.
