Abstraction and the study of material culture is central to my current studio practices and methodology; fabricated metal is my primary medium. The referential qualities of my sculpture are accomplished through part-to-part relationships of hybrid forms that retain some degree of their origins while also pointing to other destinations. Color is a critical element, and the colors are chosen to be as suggestive as the assembled structure itself.

I have considerable experience creating durable monumental sculptures that create a welcoming sense of place and offer new perspectives on the surrounding environment. I can productively work within a timeframe and a budget.

My sculptures are permanently situated in private and public locations in Iowa, Massachusetts, Virginia, and Florida. I have received commissions for Grinnell College, the City of Cedar Falls, and the Blanden Art Museum. I regularly exhibit my sculpture in national competitive public art exhibitions.
