Artist Statment

My visual vocabulary as an artist is constantly evolving. The way I see and respond to the world around me influences the shapes and forms I create. My work is largely inspired by nature, especially forms found in fractured rock formations. 

The materials and tools I use while forging also influence my visual vocabulary. The way steel moves, it's versatility and the tools used to move it, all have an effect of the shapes and lines I use. The result is a flowing collaboration between myself and the work. This holds true for my functional pieces and well as my sculptures.
