BIO
My life and my work have always been greatly influenced by the natural world. I live and work in a rural mountainous area and spend a great deal of time in a quiet and wild setting. My forms are an interpretation and organic conglomeration of what I see in my daily life. Any look at nature reveals a world that is remarkable in it's precarious balance and inevitable disintegration and change. This ever changing world is a constant source of inspiration for me as I create pieces that are either in an unlikely state of balance, merging or dividing, showing signs of fracture and disintegration, or are indicative of weathering and erosion. I am interested in simple, elemental forms that can be a metaphor for humankind's relationship to nature. Similarly, I am drawn to cast off, weathered industrial items that serve as a contrast to my natural elements and are representative of the influence of man in nature. I find in the relationship and presence of both these organic and industrial forms an elusive essence that speaks of the ongoing metamorphosis of our world.
