I create mixed media sculpture working mostly with wood while adding metal, glass, resin, cement and stone to bring texture and complexity to my work. My ideas and designs are inspired by reflecting on the things I see in the world around me and finding interesting ways to interpret them. I focus on form and structure, while often trying to express the more fluid and less tangible elements of life like emotion or movement.
I use a typical assortment of woodworking tools but rely heavily on grinders to carve and shape my work and sanders for finishing. Using techniques like lamination and inlay, I create striking visual effects with color and grain. Craftsmanship is extremely important to me, and I pay particular attention to the quality of the finish.
