When we encounter the true wonders of nature, the beauty we behold transcends our intellects and reaches directly to our hearts.

<p style="color:black;" class="font_8 ">Originally from Kansas City Missouri, I have been practicing automotive repair and refinishing from the age of 15 and developed early an appreciation of the beauty in things we think of as damaged or broken.</p>
<p style="color:black;" class="font_8">My contemporary art includes recycled and repurposed&nbsp;sculpture, mixed media assemblage, and photography. &nbsp;The medium is the subject, which speaks as a visual meditation through a mantra of shapes and colors to convey its truth.</p>
<p style="color:black;" class="font_8">Subjects are chosen or repurposed with a sense of movement and action, to heighten the awareness of the potential that exists in every object, just as in every person.</p>
<p style="color:black;" class="font_8">Themes of creation, destruction, loss, and redemption resonate with the intimacies of human existence to explore inspirations&nbsp;including the foundations of western thought, our world today, and visions of the near future.</p>
<p style="color:black;" class="font_8">When we encounter the true wonders of nature,&nbsp;the beauty we behold transcends our intellects and reaches directly to our hearts. &nbsp;I desire a similar response from viewers of my work to provoke a re-examination of our relationship to the natural world.</p>
