As a contemporary artist, my three dimensional work focuses on fabrication of large scale works, photography and metal casting. My work is dominated by installations where I combine fabricated steel elements with found objects, cast materials and large scale photography. Using a narrative approach I reveal generational layers and place them within larger social and cultural constructs expanding to include topics from a historic and contemporary viewpoint. Nostalgia and narrative appear throughout my work while incorporating humor, playfulness, as well as the more serious aspects of life. I believe art is an investigative tool able to connect the community through place and time.
