My sculpting practice is focused on sustainable public art. The objects I create range from benches and other site furnishings to biomorphic sculptures. I’ve completed numerous public art commissions across the US for streetscapes, parks and plazas, municipal buildings, healthcare facilities, museums and commercial properties. My bench designs include contemporary riffs on Victorian and Mid Century eras as well as compositions with more organic forms. My work has been honored with national awards for its innovative and technical qualities including the ‘Most Interesting Products Award’ from the American Society of Landscape Architects and the ‘Exhibitor’s Choice Gold Award’ at the Smithsonian Craft Show. My desire to work exclusively with used materials led me to develop a patented process to repurpose salvage propane tanks. I carefully dissect them and reassemble the pieces while doing no additional reshaping of the material, a process with a minimal carbon footprint that produces objects that contain 99% post-comsumer reused content. The whimsy in my work engages people of all ages while its durability and sustainable design make it ideal for the public realm.
