There is something so satisfying about moving metal. Through fabrication and forging, I am able to manipulate my materials to create form and space, capturing movement in a solid form.
I love the engineering challenges of putting each piece together. Piercing, bending, forging, pounding to create such intimate sculptures. I am drawn to the inherent obsessiveness of creating these minute compositions, all the while seeking a balance of precision and chaos in each design.
