My sculptures are about being in the moment, celebrating life and relationships with ourselves and others. When I bend wood, I am fully alive and present. If I bend too much it breaks; if not enough, I do not take full advantage of what the wood offers me. In every way possible, I bend, nail, paint, saw, drill, soak in water, and screw in a very spontaneous and deliberate way.
I explore vibrant emotions that I experience and share in my life. In the process, I bring new life to reclaimed wood, architectural salvaged materials, and found objects. My sculptures engage and excite, and the viewer is reminded that beauty can be found in discarded items and transformed into something meaningful, engaging, aesthetically pleasing, original, and full of life.
