"I am passionate about  creating kinetic objects in all metals.  My extensive background in  
metalsmithing, architectural metal design, and jewelry design make all my sculpture
"Jewel-like" both in the application of extremely fine craftsmanship and careful thought out
site-specfic design.   I love the strength, integrity, durability, and mechanical opportunities
inherent in metal."
