As a painter and sculptor, I draw inspiration from natural forms such as seeds, tree branches and feats of nature like bird nests and spider webs.  The repeated forms I paint and sculpt are often serene and elemental in feel and explore themes of dimensionality, motion and dynamics in space.  My interest in site-specific public art is two fold: first, I seek opportunities to place art where it is accessible to a broader audience, one that is not necessarily seeking art in museums or galleries. Second, I see the role that art can play in activating a public space when the aesthetic choices made by the artist integrate the architecture and function of the space itself. Art that is integral to a public setting has the potential then to positively affect how people perceive their environment, by either calling attention to the physical space around them or by causing them to feel a sense of wonder, inspiration or ease without even knowing quite why.
