About the artist

Collections

Through my sculpture career I have explored the artistic elements of contrasts and similarities between form and function. My passion lies in creating communication and dialogue with each piece I sculpt, as I love blending contemporary, organic, and abstract shapes into art that will have direct communication through contact.

I enjoy creating tension, using materials in their raw form as a catalyst to create both positive and negative spaces. With complete respect for the metal, I naturally build layers, problem solving both weight and weightlessness through contrasting elements and movement in my work. My current focus is an exploration using iron and steel, studying natural organic shapes and transforming them into sculptural forms with dynamic tension and release.

My goal is in finding that one moment where the work itself allows many levels of exploration and discovery, and is a visual communication between myself and each viewer.

Please review Collections- “Natural Arts Furniture” and “Natural Arts Sculpture” for more works.
