"I enjoy taking the normally rigid and structural steel and turning it into smooth unrestrained flowing lines, shapes, and forms. Many of my pieces have begun with a found object or a fall off piece from another project. Something about the shape and form will attract me and from there, I begin to create. As I work with the patinas, I am always amazed at the individual personality that comes out in each piece of steel. The rusted steel alongside stainless steel or aluminum, compliment each other and together they create a pleasing contrast of color, form, and texture."
