My interests in sewing, bookmaking, basic carpentry, and studio-building have contributed to my sculptural techniques; repetition, intricacy within simplicity, and illusion play major roles in my work. I’m a sucker for shapely branches, seedpods, cocoons, and odd rocks. I endeavor to transform these gratis materials, interweaving them with elements that I create in the studio to construct human-made objects. The result is some odd thing that you just might find in the backyard, while puttering in your garden.
Much of my work (both 2-D and 3-D) is composed of detritus and remnants from previous projects. I like how this builds a history into my work, a kind of genetic link between pieces.
