The driving force behind my work is the interaction and intricacies of shape, form and balance: contrasting simplicity with complexity.  My sculptures begin with an idea in my minds eye that is transferred to the drawing board and often times, to scale maquetts used as study pieces.  I have always been intrigued by the interplay of textures utilizing wood, metal, stone and glass to create dynamic and visually captivating works of art.  My detail oriented personality, coupled with a chronic fascination for construction and engineering, has proven to be well suited to explore my life-long dream of creating artwork that is not only pleasing to the eye, but whose accuracy and form can be engaging.
