In my art, sculpture or works on paper I contrast and combine handmade, found and fabricated objects (forms and materials), to create works that are at once familiar and mysterious. My materials include steel, bronze, aluminum, glass, stone, ceramic, even feathers; whatever works with the content and scale of the piece or print. Sometimes contrasting elements are combined; sometime they are used in aggregate to create unique aesthetic forms that reflect my preoccupation with harmony and balance, complexity and diversity.
My sculpture can be found in public and corporate collections including the City of Aspen, Washington, DC Convention Center, and the Silverstone Group. In addition, my work is in the private collections of notable collectors such as those of Aimee and Robert Lehrman, Nancy and Bob Magoon, Laura Donnelley, Robert and Karen Duncan and Ginny Williams.
My work has been exhibited at the Smithsonian Institution and has traveled to museums nationally in the “Seeing Jazz” Exhibition. It has also been shown in Berlin and Rome and at the Denver Art Museum, The Aspen Art Museum, and the US Botanical Garden.
