The sculptures I create are carefully crafted over a period of many days, often becoming months, time spent tediously forming and hand-fitting each piece one at a time to contribute to the whole of the form.  Although I create static sculptures, my love is creating moving sculptures from found objects. 

"Spirit"

Now part of SOBO Gallery's

permanent collection in Winter Garden, FL

Spirit is one of the few pieces I've created where I tried to keep the original pieces of scraps and objects as they were found, avoiding cutting and forging pieces into shapes as much as possible.  Assembling found metal pieces into a form without shaping them individually first, is a very challenging and unique metal sculpting technique that requires a lot of stepping back and looking at what you are creating in order to gain overall perspective.   I find it very rewarding!

Thank you to Winter Garden Arts Association and SOBO Gallery for giving Spirit a beautiful permanent home in your collection!
