Artist Statement

I am a contemporary metal artist working in a modern organic style; much of my inspiration is drawn from nature.

Combining different materials in new ways allows me a great spectrum of expression.

Materials include traditional gold, silver, and platinum plus copper, stainless steel, and unusual Japanese alloys—shakudo and shibuichi—to provide an extended palette and exploit a broad range of patina finishes. Each piece is hand fabricated. A series may include stylistically similar work but no two are identical. Collectors of my work are assured a unique piece of art exhibiting subtle nuances, all with pride in craftsmanship and vision.

Commissions are always welcome.
