Sculpture

 


Art has always been an important creative outlet for me.  While I studied at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, I worked with as many different materials and processes as was possible: clay, stone, wood, fabric, metal fabrication, welding, blacksmithing, glass blowing and casting. In 2005 I graduated with a Bachelors Degree of Fine Arts - Sculpture with a Minor in Crafts. 


After graduation I left Detroit for the beauty and isolation of the hills of northern California.  There I spent much of the next 5 years working at the Odiyan Foundry producing bronze statuary. In 2010 I moved to Seattle, and since then I’ve continued to develop as an artist and craftsman through a series of day jobs. First I worked for a company (now closed) that created decorative fused glass slabs used for monuments and home projects. In 2014 I changed directions, beginning my time doing custom ironwork for Ballard Ornamental Ironworks.

What I’ve learned about myself is that unlike many artists who seem to have a well-spring of ideas, I work best within a context. The more time I spend with any given material, the more space I have for my creative inspiration to emerge.
