MORE ABOUT THIS ARTIST

Statement of Work

Artist Statement:

What kind of art do I make?  

Making thoughts visible is my goal. 

 

My focus is to produce a high quality metal sculpture.   Beginning with sheet metal, I shape and weld pieces together creating a three dimensional form.   To make a sculpture that looks as if it was carved from a solid chunk is part of that focus. 

The sculptures I make represent phases of my life such as: my thoughts, dreams, experiences, or just interesting shapes I have thought up and developed over time.
