As a sculptor, I strive to design and execute artworks that intrigue and inspire a viewer about their place in an environment or space. My work exhibits a relationship between our existence as a human species and the universe in which we exist. I examine the tools and concepts that we have created in order to understand our world and I explore ideas that dwell on the boundaries of reason and logic. I believe these explorations are the fertile grounds from which true discoveries are born.
