The environment of Colorado and the Southwest significantly influences my work. I draw from the energy of the mountains, sky, weather, plains, grasslands, rivers, wetlands, and our urban environments. My sculptures represent the energy found in totems and the interaction of the positive and negative spaces created by the sculpture's shapes. These represent moments in time depicted in a static state.
In the last seven years, I have designed, constructed, and installed more than 63 public art sculptures. All sculptures completed are designed for extreme weather conditions by utilizing steel - powder-coated, chromed, rusted, high fire salt, or rubber coating components. Additionally, all sculptures are designed with virtually no maintenance requirements, public safety and ease of graffiti abatement have been incorporated into each sculpture. My sculpture is positive and reaches out to folks to encourage exploration of thoughts, positive affirmations, and general well-being.
