My art is an expression of personal experiences, of drifting moments into my emotions – an invitation into my soul for every viewer to share and feel my life’s passion. It is a reflection of the world in which we live, inspired by the beauty that surrounds us in our peace and in times of tragedy gone past.

It is influenced by the instinct of human nature to find true expression and reveal it in its purest form no matter the consequence. I have always strived to find ways to form and reform my feelings into expressions abstract and often surreal.

Any notable composer will tell you great music is played between the notes. It is here I discover the amazing world of shapes and forms. Working with metal is where I find my greatest strength and challenges, sculpting emotions from one of the coldest and roughest materials into something gentle and beautiful.
