Artist Statement

Artist Statement: I am a self taught sculptor artist with over 20 years of experience working in a sheet metal shop. Having mastered the skill of metal fabrication and being inspired by the ocean waves, WAVEform was born….a striking design concept. Fusing abstract elements, mirror polish stainless steel is hand shaped into a one of a kind wondrous design. WAVEform creates stunning design spaces that can be introduced into a wide variety of modern environments. Each hand formed sculpture finishes with resemblance but never identical, mirroring the beauty of the waves themselves! My work has been called ”striking” ”exquisite” ”mysterious” ”stunning” ”compelling” ”unexpected” ”lovely” ”stellar” even ” unbelievably cool!” I am thrilled to work with individuals, art curators, interior designers, and architects, to develop cutting edge site specific design installations. I look forward to beginning a project with you!
