My work is concerned with the dynamism of the natural world. Observing processes of action and movement, my work reflects organic behaviors and translates those actions into static forms. I focus on the figural, incorporating elements of illusion and chaos while preserving the human form.
I have always been interested in the complexities of the figure, and by exploring the possibilities of depiction my work has evolved into a more abstract study of motion. The sculpture must evoke not just physical qualities but also emotional capacity and energy. Sculpture is a means of translating wordless emotions; it is a language of forms.
My materials and processes focus on metalwork, primarily with steel and bronze. I use a variety of welding techniques as well as casting.
