My drawings and sculptural work are meant to evoke a sort of 4th dimension connecting emotive, physical, spiritual and intellectual worlds perhaps yet unknown but perceived through the medium of art and imagination. My art is inspired by nature, malleable time, the sciences, geometry, laws of physics, and a healthy dose of jazz, fused with the joy of drawing and hand crafting - a heady place to reside and dream.
The sculptures, furniture and exotic wood boxes combine all aspects of my ideas and career. Each piece is an exploration and experiment in technique, idea, craft and material.
