Artist Statement

Working with simple materials such as hardwoods, plywoods and various metals, I construct systems of objects that tend to be made up of smaller elemental units. My work is a formal exploration of modern lines that are compromised by their application; the industrial as interpreted by the individual.

Although my main concern is the making of objects, I also use drawing and rudimentary print techniques that inform and complement my sculptural activities.
