The artworks that are extruded from my inner being come forth through the direct inspiration I find in the natural world. I see a bird perched in a tree or ready to take wing, the vast awe wrenching mystery of the solar galaxies and the simplistic beauty of a flower petal unfurling. These elements and more are the basis of honoring the world around me through the use of a variety of metals.
By taking this inspiration and applying it to our modern lifestyles, I have developed a fusion of art and function. A handrail which visually tells the story of the life of birds, a garden gate which twists and branches like a tree, a vessel to provide a special plant with a personal shrine or a birdfeeder in the form of a gigantic flower. This approach to art allows the viewer to interact directly with the artwork and experience first hand the magnificent world we are part of.
