I’ve always had an eye for geometry, and early on easily developed skills using drafting tools prior to studying Architecture and then Environmental Design. I’m best known for site-specific public art primarily in glass, metal and wood, but I also create autonomous pieces: paintings on board, mixed media works on paper, sculpture and screens. I utilize the latest in glass technology as well as more traditional techniques.
Over the years I have developed and continue to refine a personal abstract language that I use for improvisation, much like a jazz musician. I am drawn to creating a precarious balance between order and chaos in my work. A piece might have what appears to be a more rigid overall structure, but upon closer inspection comes alive with the micro-details, much like an improvised melody in music played over a repeating series of chord changes. Glass is an amazing material, alive with the light and always changing, which brings its own special qualities to my work. I paint with light.
