Metal representations of relationships and connectivity. Our specialness is illustrated by the irregularities created in the making process. The resulting surface textures harken to organic matter and play with the concept of impermanence. Like hammer and hands on the metal, we are similarly shaped by life.
Our signature experiences create all shades of individuality. Create us.
I use accessible materials that are often overlooked as mediums in traditional art. These materials take on new life as molecules, raindrops, feathers, and bones. Elements of life. These works are intended to enhance the positive energy of the space in which the works are placed.
Copper is attractive to me for it’s color and healing properties, glowing with lively energy. It’s one of the few mediums I have found that allows me to freely abstract literal concepts, experience flow, and discover new ways to communicate. I feed my curious thirst for knowledge and experience by challenging myself to massage fresh, hopeful work into being.
From the very physical making to it’s completion, Cascades represents the points of light that suspend my heart and mind, buffering, protecting and connecting to others with love.

In-Between is an exhibit of a series of seed mosaics. They are simple landscapes and designs inspired by travels through rural and small town Ohio. Constructed of seeds, bark, pods, and shells, these small-scale works are a quick, expressive means for exploring ideas and experimenting with materials collected from the very places the artist tries to depict.
Stop by Feverhead this Saturday, February 23rd at 8:00 PM and witness the collaborative piece “Rituals of Identity.” Produced by Tawanda Chabikwa with collaborators Coco Loupe and Nicole Garlando, this movement piece explores the revelation of process as well as a live inquiry into improvisation, ritual, the essential components of self and the places where they overlap, diverge and run along side one another.
