My sculptures combine my craft as a fine art sculptor, musical instrument maker, musician and composer. The works include interactive sound environments. Materials are especially important - wood for its acoustic resonance and surface richness; aluminum for its sonic properties and reflective light properties; steel for its mass and tone. Searching and learning about sound often leads me to new sculptural results. Discovery is my best guide as I explore materials for their unique qualities.


My goal in my art is to understand and explore the environment using elements of movement, sound, and light to form a relationship through the reflection of space in and around the sculpture. Carved or painted surfaces create abstract patterns. Each sculpture relies on these aesthetic qualities to form and shape the work. Designs scale up, establishing a sense of place and encouraging the viewer to interact with the work. I greatly enjoy the audience’s participation in my sculptures - together discovering their meaning and purpose.
