I’m passionate about using art to make a difference, and I’ll find a way through any challenge.
I don’t come from a fine arts background. I did get a BA in studio art and go to school for welding, but my education has come primarily from working side-by-side with other artists, where I’ve learned by doing.
From high performance concrete to metal, crochet to acrylic plastics, wood to paint, rubber, plaster, ceramics, etching circuit boards and light wiring, I have an unusually versatile background in large-scale public work.
