contemporary metal artist
The metal, for me, is key for telling my story in my art. The rustic metal has traveled and served a purpose, and now is transformed into something else; something just as purposeful as its original function. The shape, holes, and texture add visual and tactile elements that are vital to the whole story. When I combine this with both organic and iridescent hues, it sends the metal, and me, on a new, artistic journey.
when darkness comes
I have recently published my series when darkness comes into a book. This series relates some of my own experiences with depression in both art and prose. This is a very personal body of work for me that I hope can help others understand the mindset of depression. You may view the artwork here and order the book here.
