Artist Statement

I create three-dimensional objects based on my familiarity with death, devastation, human anatomy, and war zones. My work blends therapeutically materialized objects that purge memories with whimsy. What if God reinvented man after the Industrial Revolution? What if metal alloys could replace bones? What if human exoskeletons became the norm? A series of steel forms combine science fiction and current technology. We have only scratched the surface of the human machine.
