Statement

Artist's Statement

My art is made of steel. My technique is brute force, decide-at-the-moment.

I have an affinity towards discarded metal. Weekly I travel to scrap metal yards throughout California, looking for interesting pieces of steel that have been tossed aside. When I find something special I grab it and take it back to my studio. It may take me only moments, or many months discover what that piece wants or needs to become, only then can I fulfill its destiny.

My creative process emerges with patterns. I incorporate patterns into all of my sculptures. Taking one piece, adding to it, or deleting from it, then ending when the work encompasses all of my creativity, this is what charges up my artistic energies. When my creative force is flowing, I work to completion. It is finished when the creative flow ends.

I strive to create art that is completely unique, to create something no one has created before. I resist conformity and mass production. My art is as individual as I am.

I have been an artist all my life. I am fascinated with engineering and architecture. The shapes of metal, its patterns, textures and grains; all entice me to create.
