Art connects us in ways we are still discovering…I love that connection whether it occurs through literature, music, dance or visual arts – art is our “life” story as Earth’s current inhabitants. When I make prints or paintings, the image seems to come alive – it’s like magic!

My metal work tells a little of my story.
It is a perfect convergence of my love of learning, tinkering, exploring and challenging myself through the knowledge of the fine metal medium and the skills of traditional metalsmithing. It answers my innate need to be precise and the freedom and creativity of being an artist.
My creations are a reflection of my love for Life, Nature and the kindred human spirit.
They are continually inspired by all that I see in the world; the strength of a tree silhouetted against a blue sky, the textures, lines and repetitions dancing in an ever changing river, the industrial endeavors of time past and time yet to come and our kindred human spirits helping each other heal & live fully through this amazing, crazy life.

I take functional forms that people can use daily and create an association of place by using clay and wood from specific places. This gives the work emotion, and meaning unique to the individual experiencing the work in relation to the individuals experience to the place. My art is made for people to form their own feelings toward each piece. The true meaning behind each piece is unique to each individual experiencing it. My goal is to make art that people want in their daily life to have, to hold, and to enhance one’s daily experience with beauty, and practicality.
