Artist Statement
In my work, I look to better understand the global condition of cultural mixing by employing weaving and binding as a metaphor.  I enjoy exploring and combining both traditional and non-traditional techniques and materials.  As functional objects, I hope to suggest the commonality of our basic human utilitarian needs.  As sculpture, I celebrate the diversity of various materials and the intrinsic qualities these materials contain.  In combining and often weaving bamboo, bronze, rattan, wood, steel, and acrylic, I attempt to bridge gaps between Studio Furniture, Contemporary Fine Arts, and Sculpture.
