Sculpture

I have been building/making things as long as I can remember. At the age of five I was watching my neighbor’s house being constructed. This interest in wood and how pieces are shaped and put together has been a lifelong interest for me. I would describe my work as constructivist in approach. I am drawn to elemental shapes, positive and negative space, and the colors and grain of wood. Over the years I have found my language for how these pieces come together in a composition that says what I need to say.
