    As a child, I fell in love with contraptions, coin-operated amusements and marionettes. The clack and clatter of machinery and the visual "eye candy" of mechanisms all gave me a thrill. I have always wanted to make things that moved or implied some hidden mechanical purpose. Drawings of Rube Goldberg-like chain reaction machines filled my sketchbook as a 9 year old. In our basement workshop I would spend hours dismantling old timepieces and then reimagine them as the inner workings of the puppets I was making. If I listened closely enough I could hear the whirring of gears and governors in their chests. I have observed that if a machine does the same thing over and over it seems lifeless. So I like when a machine can generate a certain randomness. By engineering in a little bit of variability, the result is like there is a spirit in the machine.

    I work primarily in recycled and reclaimed materials. I am a weaver, a sculptor, a metalsmith and a woodworker. I paint and I draw too. I work for private clients, architects and designers. For the last 25 years I have been professional artist and craftsperson. I am always glad to entertain a private commission wether it is for an award, an installation or special one-of-a-kind gift.
