Artist Bio

My artwork seeks to reveal the beauty of the discarded. My primary medium is felled urban timber to give it a second life rather than see it burned, chipped, or dumped. This “perfectly imperfect” medium allows for simplicity of form as a starting point to create varieties of contrast, pattern, and visual movement. I find inspiration in the textures and patterns of city life, natural or man made. Primary influences are, the Arts & Crafts Movement, Modernism, and the Zen concept of wabi sabi.
