Artist Statement
Metal has become the main tool to express my visual vocabulary. Metal is very seductive for a multitude of reasons. Its pure structural strength, its fragility to bend, its ability to capture time in its inherent chemistry, its reflective nature and its ease of joining via the lucid quality of a weld. A weld being a means of drawing upon metal as well.

The figure is seductive for its mystery, curves, nuances of color and provocative nature. Its complexity a constant visual challenge.

Taking a hard piece of steel and fusing upon it a molten weld that when cooled defines a woman, is alluring. Simplifying the figure to the least amount of lines necessary in order to define her. I like to leave room for the mystery, seduction and wonderment within the piece.
