The specific forms of my work float on the surface of a well of memory. I create discreet objects, objects in series and installation.
My preferred material is steel, and/or Stone. In my constructions, the material wears its identity through rough-cut edges, visible welds, and an undisguised slabness. I may combine them with glass, stone, text, photographs, and miscellaneous findings.
By cutting, burning, and welding, experience, and emotion are melded into steel.
