Artist Statement

I am a lifelong gardener and landscaper who discovered another artist side of me. I continue to do interior and exterior work for homes and hotels in the San Francisco area. I first started selling my art wholesale there and then after moving to Colorado 10 years ago, I began with art shows.

My artwork is hand constructed using perlite and cement. After forming, the work is cured, sculpted and either left natural or colored using concrete stains. The pieces are about a 4 to 1 ratio of perlite to cement. This makes them lightweight and durable in any weather or temperature.

As I build a piece, I will add in bits of glass, ceramics, rock or other collected materials. These additions will often be in patterns or appear randomly after carving the piece.
