ARTIST STATEMENT

Trained as an engineer, I normally face any task using the analytical side of my brain. The right side, more spatial  and creative, provides me with the elements to think outside the box.  This combination allows me to work on a variety of media, and understand and take advantage of the physical properties and capabilities of the materials.  I have used in my art wood, glass, metal, clay, cement, acrylics, watercolors and oils.   

Glass has an intrinsic beauty; color and transparency play intensely when subject to light sources, be they natural or artificial. I mainly use iridescent glass to design and build my glass art pieces. Though fragile, glass is strong enough to be used as serving pieces; I design plates, serving trays, and a variety of serving elements....and I always say “ food taste better on these plates”  I also design abstract “paintings” in glass for display.

In contrast, metal is cold and hard. Bending, welding and pounding  metal allows a steel plate, bar or other shapes a fluidity you would not think it is possible....The possibilities are unlimited.  I also use clay and cement for abstract and figurative sculptures. 

I find that there is an important message that the title of an art piece can convey to the observer and I try to do so in my designs.   

I have complemented the glass and sculptural work with some two dimensional art by lately focusing on acrylic medium
