I am drawn to the myriad textures and forms that I encounter in daily life. Much of my inspiration comes from the natural world, but I am as likely to be influenced by a complex architectural detail, as I am by the gentle curve of a branch against a darkening sky. In my work I aspire to fabricate pieces that represent a synergy of creative expression and technical skill. I thrive on minute details, and enjoy the challenge of continually trying to push my work to the next level of innovation.
