Meet the Creator

A native of the Louisiana Gulf Coast, studio Northern Colorado since 2001.

My day-to-day includes dialog with other professionals on interior sculpture of monumental scale as well as periods of quiet building smaller scale, personal work.

My work is about being alive within and moving through the mesh of our cultural, natural and social worlds. It ranges over such themes as the quality of materials, what it means to make things and the experiences of light, space and mystery. The sculptures that I make are the result of play and the interplay of structure, color, movement, balance and refined craft.
