Artist Bio

My interest in public art began from childhood visits to museums and finding the sculpture gardens to be the most interesting type of art in the collections. I was intrigued with the idea of removing art from the traditional spaces of the museum and gallery and placing it in the everyday world. The ability to expand on my interest in public art began while enrolled in the MFA program in studio sculpture as an exploration of sculpture and sculpture sites.

On the aesthetic side I enjoy observing the changes provided by the ever changing position of the sun as well as the seasonal changes on the sculptures. Incorporating the outdoor elements as a part of the sculpture and observing the interaction with the weather conditions are an important part of the experience. Distilled from all the above is color, rhythm and pattern, which has informed the current work.
