my subjects are predominantly natural forms taken directly from my weekend forays into the wilds of Wyoming. My backyard beckons me to create shapes and imagery that mimics wildlife such as moose, deer and others that don't make their home here such as octopus. whatever strikes me as interesting or intruiging quickly has my hands dancing over the steel to create transpose shapes and textures over familiar forms.
my jackson, wy shopspace is decorated with all manner of inspiration. found objects such as rocks, tree gnarls and donated items such as car hoods and license plates, adorn every surface. i work with a _____ and a _____ as well as a variety of tools to manipulate texture, color and edges.
my work spans from strucutural pieces with precise measurements to free form interpretations of my subjects. from custom signage to interpretations, I invite you to explore my work. For custom pieces and inquiries, please use the contact me page.
predominantly self-taught, my experience is derived from play and exploration. I spent time at the Art Institute of Seattle, which helped me discover my love of sculpture and 3D form. My love for materials in their natural state derives from my background in the pacific northwest, where ship yards and rust are abundant.
unlike traditional metal artists who use a cast technique to replicate work, i shape and create each piece my hand. i create my own jigs and templates to generate consistency but each piece is unique and individual
