Living and working in industrial spaces of South Boston and Holyoke, Massachusetts have had a great effect on my work as an artist.  My experiences exploring warehouses and waterfront alleyways led to a fascination with the inherent beauty of rundown factory buildings, broken machines and rusted mechanisms.

When combining materials, I think about how their disparate characteristics will play against or act on each other: oxidized steel, bleeding into plaster or a delicate mylar form floating in cement.

 

Drawing plays an important part in my creative process. Ideas are chosen from my sketchbooks - sketches then become rough “blueprints” for sculptures.

The books reveal connections and metamorphoses between figurative and nonrepresentational images. Some of the sketches are accompanied by notes and instructions to myself.
