I am in continuous pursuit of techniques that enable me to transform new and used metal into objects of art by defying the coarse, stiff nature of my materials. Currently I am experimenting with an entirely different texture derived from the combination of metal, mesh wire and bonding compounds. I have also found challenge and success in being able to cut and mold sheets of metal into pliable, realistic everyday items. Seeing my large, heavy fish float gently in the wind on an outdoor mobile and surprising the viewer with my delicate pair of stiletto shoes is most satisfying.
