Artist statement

My art is a translation of the environment that surrounds me. The energy I receive from nature produces a desire for me to create and share my interpretations with others. Many of my sculptors intertwine mediums such as, wood, rock and steel. Combining the natural elements allows me to feel connected to my subject, collecting these pieces is part of the process. Many years of welding and hand forging steel has unraveled into what you see in my art today, limitless expression of multiple mediums. Sharing has always been a very important part of who I am as a person, art has gifted me this ability. Gratitude for art has many layers.
