Settings exist, both architectural and landscape that cry out for sculpture and kinetic art. My goal is to locate and enrich these settings. My mobiles and sculptures have been sited within interior spaces, atria, courtyards and meadows. I create objects that maintain harmony and balance, and that impart to the viewer a resonating sense ofwonder and pleasure. Making these sculptures is my passion, be it for the corporate client or the collector. My artistic interpretations have found expression in free standing sculpture, mobiles, stabiles, and industrial design. The dimensions range from tabletop size to the mightier proportions dictated by site and space.
When working with architects, designers, and individual collectors, I listen to my client and incorporate their objectives into my sculpture. Together, in concert, we establish the project, select the mediums, and discuss any logistic parameters. Within an established time frame and budget, I produce the commissioned piece and, if necessary, supervise the installation. To generate art with a lasting presence and display it where it will bring excitement to others - this is my fundamental goal.
For over 17 years I have been making mobiles and fostering a passion for industrial design. My innate curiosity nourished by the opportunity to work with talented artists and designers in various capacities has taught me much.
I have elected to pursue my training in the field, apprenticing to artists and tradesman in place of academic curricula. I have worked with blacksmiths and in metal shops in order to learn more about processes, and have taught myself by constantly changing my approaches to new challenges. Since receiving my undergraduate degree from New England College in 1991, I have produced works that have been shown in a multitude of galleries. My work is represented in private collections in Illinois, California, Colorado, Connecticut, New York, Vermont, Montana, Montreal and Florida. Commissions have included a juried selection for Intrawest Corporation at The Stratton Mountain Club, four large mobiles in a fantastic contemporary restaurant in Washington DC, called Oyamel, a thirty foot tall mobile for Kelliher, Samets, Volk in Burlington, VT., two mobiles for a theater lobby on the campus of Vermont Academy, as well as a large, piece suspended in the lobby of The Lindner Center for Hope in Cincinnati, OH.
