Artist Statement:

I am a local Collingswood artist. I’ve worked in a wide variety of media, but currently work primarily in wood, metal, and resin, creating mechanical and kinetic artwork. The pieces I’m working on now are an exploration of energy, motion, and narrative. In my past paintings and drawings I have sought out larger narratives, but with my mechanical artwork the narrative must fit through the filter of corporeal objects in motion. This creates challenging obstacles to overcome, the hallmark of a novel pursuit.
