As a self-taught artist, woodworker, designer, musician, songwriter, and entrepreneur, I have learned that the only boundaries are those that are self-imposed. Diagnosed with a severe case of dyslexia at an early age, I have realized that my disability is actually a gift, for the conventional way of learning has never been an option; I rely on my own inventiveness to show me the way. My work is a product of the ability to open new doors where both visual creativity and inventiveness come together.
This current body of work brings together my ability to work with color, wood, fabrication, design and spatial relation. Each sculpture is based on the grouping of elements to create a whole. Each individual element is hand fabricated to exacting tolerances and then finished with 14 to 16 coats of lacquer. Each element is precisely hung with a patented hanging system to ensure the engineered integrity that defines this body of work. One might say this work is magically minimal.
