I make objects that suggest containment.  My interests in design and architecture and a background in glass blowing and fabrication has formed the foundation for my body of work.

 

My artwork reflects the evolutionary aspect of my life - ever changing and always developing.

 

Over the years I have used machines and materials that have been specifically developed for my work in creating sculptures. I use cold-working techniques: cutting, stacking and laminating sheets of glass, to create volumetric forms.  My interest in technological advances in glass and in ultraviolet adhesives, dyes and pigments lead me to design pieces with an amazing spectrum of colors.

 

My sculptures focus on both the exterior and the interior form of the vessel.  I describe volume on the outside while portraying an interior landscape of color and light.  By laminating a combination of rough and highly polished surfaces using dyed adhesive, I create three-dimensional paintings.  Each piece is handcrafted and meticulously sculpted to emphasize its unique intersection of form, color and light.

 

I am a formalist in that I am intrigued by forms and structures in our environment and create art that adds to our enjoyment of that environment.  As a visual artist, I make three-dimensional pieces that are best experienced by walking around each piece to view how it reacts to light, movement and the environment.
