I live a blessed life, with all it’s learning curves as parent, husband and self employed artist. Correctly navigating and prioritizing all the things that bring me joy, provides plenty of opportunities for growth.
As a visual artist, I love to invent and fabricate. My vision is to create original three-dimensional products and projects that move people. I strive for work that is creative, smart, and provocative. I have a passion for creating anything three dimensionally.
For sixteen years now as a self-employed artist, I have merged my educational experiences in Fine Arts, Industrial Design and Fabrication into one path. . My process begins with many sketches and remains very fluid throughout physical construction. While I am compulsive about the fit and finish, my work is usually punctuated by my obsession with mathematics, geometry, pattern, texture, and repetition. Visually, I am drawn to the constructivist and postmodernist styles, and my work is often highlighted by my love of satire and parody.
I create unique Furniture, Sculpture, Environments and Widgets, in many mediums, and can do custom casting in plaster, stone, or even plastic. All my work here is original and fabricated from raw materials.
I love to build.
When creativity is unbound, your return on investment will be exponential.
