• Artist Statement

    "From the earth" is the theme in all of my work, as if each welded flower or blade of grass might have sprouted from a rhizome, seed or cutting.

    A nodding flower. A twisted leaf. Movement is central to every creation, leading one customer to remark, “You make metal come alive.”

    Working with materials I have on-hand results in a variety of outcomes within a shared framework. Surprises in color and shape open up new possibilities. Each time I set out to construct an image, I find something quite different, yet better than I had imagined. I enjoy creating new pieces of art and I hope my customers will smile every time they look my work.
