Artist Statement

I am a self-taught metal artist working with a variety of collected and discarded materials. Inspired by my West Coast upbringing, I create art that reflects my passion for nature and my imagination. I enjoy working with both cherished mementos and objects often forgotten or destined to be destroyed.

The physicality of the process suits my personality well; from the hunt for interesting materials to the process of designing, cutting, bending and fitting, to the final welding of each uniquely crafted work of art.

My hope is that each piece I create showcases my mischievous sense of humour, playful attention to detail and design aesthetic.
