I started out as a child, building tree houses and various objects. Creating became a critical part of my life. Later I excelled at art and became interested in light and discovered film. At Columbia College, I continued my studies, eventually finding myself at the University of Wisconsin Madison. Immersing myself in the abstract and the practical, I learned and unlearned aspects of my art.
Over the last 30 years, I have continued to work on my sculptures both large and small in a host of materials. My work has been sold internationally. One of the highlights of my career was being commissioned by the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum to create an entryway sculpture and mural to commemorate the museum’s anniversary.
Working in the Sedgwick Studio over the last twelve years has helped me to mature as an artist, collaborating and making the objects necessary to my life.
