My process begins with looking over the many sketches I have drawn out on paper and thinking about what I want the piece to reflect. Even as I am drawing, my mind is thinking about connections between myself, people, nature and the world.


I source my metals from electrical suppliers and local scrapyards. Either place is always an adventure!

"Copper is itself is a very conductive metal used in communication. Since my work is all about connection, it is the perfect material to work with to tell my stories."
