About the Artist

I started working in metal 14 years ago after a 20+ year career as a special effects animator for film and television. I left the film business so that I could concentrate on my metal works but my work is still profoundly influenced by my time spent as an animator.

Copper may seem to be solid and static, lending itself to designs of permanence and stability, but I use it to express the dynamic nature and motion found in my subjects. Instead of using time to evolve a design as I would in animation, I now distill the essence of movement into a single frame.
