Artist Statement

It is my intention to experiment and push the limits of what can be created from various mediums. I have explored the possibilities presented by materials such as clay, winterstone, resin, paper and bronze. It is ultimately metal that excites me the most; the permanence, the finality, the weight of it. The lost wax process stimulates and challenges my creativity.
