My Art is the culmination of some of the best and worst times of my life “Combined with the mastery of skills, of craft, and the attempt to manipulate light in ways that no one expects. My fascination with light has been a lifelong thing that is evident in every piece I make. When I start a new piece, my desire is to control the light, and therefore the appearance of the piece, in a way that beckons you to see more around the corner and surprises at each turn. Much of my artistic journey stems from my desire to produce pleasing shapes that flow, reflect and refract the light, like that little spot on the horizon that catches your eye, making you keep looking back to watch it dance on the edge. I strive for technical perfection and attention to detail on every piece knowing full well I may never reach that goal but the journey is part of the fun.
