My work is about balance. I get my ideas from the shapes, rhythms, patterns, and movement I find in the natural world of vegetation as well as the built world, and then fuse them into some degree of harmony. Sometimes this balance falls nearer the organic side of the spectrum as in my graphite drawings, and at other times is closer to the man-made side such as my recent assemblages created from found metal objects. It can even be a balance of both, depicted in my sculptures with their stylized shapes, but never one without the other.
