Artist Statement

I enjoy honest welds and allen head bolts, the joy of struggle, and walnut oil on smooth sanded wood.  My best work has regret and relief and sometimes I throw wrenches.  

I steal natural shapes for my sculpture.  Animal bones and river stones feel familiar in my gut.  They’re all over the place, and they’re beautiful.

I take emotional resonance and apply it to beautiful shapes.  The right emotion and the right shape just might be powerful to the right person.  

Maybe it is a small example of how to practice BOTH AND in addition to EITHER OR.

My intent is to make art that contributes to a wider conversation about justice and care and our impact on the world.  I hope it helps people think and be happy; I hope it helps people be important to each other.
