His work reflects a fascination with texture: a weathered chunk of ancient oak, the patina of old bone or rusted metal, the delicate surface of a speckled eggshell.
He has a preference to use natural materials and his penchant toward rust leads to the discovery of unappreciated treasures hiding in plain sight. Man-made materials, particularly Formica, are often used to provide an interesting counterpoint to the natural elements.
Invariably a found item will spark a concept to be cultivated into the final form of a sculpture, often accompanied by a whimsical, sometimes eccentric title.
