artist statement

Observing the natural landscape around me, I’m inspired by the unique patterns and distinctive shapes from plants, animals as well as the colors and textures of rocks. The seeming permanence of metal and stone used as compositional elements captures the essence of what I see, and I translate those elements and designs into sculptures.

It starts with the stone. I use sandstone and slate from the Southwestern deserts as a foundation for the sculptures. The look, feel and texture of the stone influences the shape the metal will ultimately become.

My intent is to show the relationship and origin of the metal from the earth, and bring it full circle in its journey back to its original state. Forming metal pieces into repetitive shapes that mimic those found in nature enables me to convey this connection.

My goal is for the sculptures to reveal an alternative perspective, providing the viewer with a diverse and unique visual experience.
