I celebrate our connection to the animal world by creating sculptures made with clay, resin, paint, carved wood, collage, found objects, recycled tins and boxes, and a sense of humor.
I’m a Denver based artist who shrinks life down into clever miniature vignettes using repurposed items like vintage phones, cameras, radios, and other unique salvaged vessels.
All jewelry is handmade using traditional methods of metalsmithing such as fabrication, forming, texturing, and forging.
All of my work is wheel thrown stoneware, but most forms are altered and cut to create a variety of shapes. Using matte glazes and wax resist, I create designs inspired by an interest in geometry, nature, and repeating patterns.
The grinding creates swirling reflective gradients which, when they catch light, generate astonishing visual motion behind the inked image. The result are two dimensional artworks that appear deeply 3-D and alive with motion!
Laminated carved wood sculptures covered with flattened bottle caps. Some wood grain is exposed.
I photograph the stunning landscapes and Americana of the west and beyond with an emphasis on moment, light, color and composition.
Mixed media encaustic paintings with graphite, oil and paper. Insets that contain stones, found objects, wood, steel cable and plant material–natural elements in juxtaposition with man-made elements.
