Artist's Statement

I began my work in metals after having already formed a career in graphic design. Mid-twentieth century typography and science fiction illustration has had a profound effect on my visual language from childhood. The bold use of line, color, and dramatic metaphor translate directly into my creations, which I think of as three-dimensional illustrations. Conceptually, science fiction has the power to challenge and entertain us by creating complex worlds and characters whose strangeness helps bring our own world into focus. Through the dramatic and often prescient visions of the human future sci-fi provides, I create pieces that speak of past optimism, present problems, and future possibilities.
