I have spent most of my life making art in some form or other. I was Raised in beautiful Northern California and grew up with a tremendous love of the natural world. The forms found in the organic world have played a large part in the vocabulary of my recent sculpture.

My sculptures are based on the forms of plants, bones, insects, seed pods, musical instruments and machine parts. I am interested in creating works that illustrate a symbiotic relationship between the natural and the machine world. I think of these creations as Biometamorphs, fossil records of a living, transformative change.
