I shape cop­per and glass into botan­i­cal and fan­ci­ful sculp­tures, work­ing to evoke appre­ci­a­tion of form and sur­prise in the viewer.I bor­row from numer­ous met­al and glass work­ing dis­ci­plines, and find being pri­mar­i­ly self-taught frees me to use a vari­ety of tools and tech­niques. I use hand tools to cut and shape met­al, and repoussé and chas­ing to add dimen­sion and detail my sur­faces. I leave most of my work to nat­u­ral­ly age and pati­na with time.

Appre­ci­a­tion of nature and a back­ground in envi­ron­men­tal biol­o­gy feed into my botan­i­cal themes. My more whim­si­cal forms are light­heart­ed, and fun to cre­ate. An ear­ly com­mis­sion led me to focus on cop­per and glass. I enjoy the chal­lenges that each present me as an artist. These mate­ri­als lend them­selves to out­door and indoor set­tings, and my work has often found a home in both.
