I have a lifelong fascination with animals. To make the large scale sculptures I search scrap yards for industrial refuse ravaged by usage and demolition. Bent and twisted, such pieces contain energy and potential new life. Recently I have been making small watercolors inspired by random beauty.

Arrived in Rome last night
1 year ago
A long trip with bad weather coming in, but today in Rome it is beautiful with a vibrant blue sky. I am so happy to be here and have some time to explore before the Art Fair. I plan to do some painting during my two weeks here. Looking forward very much to Artrooms Roma!
