I am a sculptor who draws inspiration from the deep spiritual connection between humanity and the natural world. Working primarily with steel and stainless steel, I create indoor and outdoor art pieces that aim to evoke emotions and foster human connection, while often conveying an underlying spiritual message.
For me, art is not just about creating something beautiful. It's about expressing my innermost feelings, my beliefs, and my experiences. Through my art, I hope to share a part of myself with others, and to inspire them to connect with their own spirituality and the natural world.
I find that metalwork is the perfect medium to express these themes. The strength, durability, and resilience of steel and stainless steel reflect the power and endurance of the human spirit, and the organic shapes and textures convey the beauty and complexity of nature.
In my creative process, I often start with a concept that resonates with me, and then let my intuition and imagination guide me. I enjoy the challenge of shaping hard, rigid materials into forms that convey softness, fluidity, and emotion.
Ultimately, my goal is to create art that not only resonates with me but also speaks to others. I hope that my pieces inspire conversation, contemplation, and connection, and that they remind us of our common humanity and the beauty of the world we share.
So, if you're looking for art that not only looks great but also connects with your heart and soul, I invite you to explore my work. Each piece is a reflection of my personal journey, but also an invitation to connect with yours. Let my sculptures be a bridge, a conduit, and a source of inspiration on your path to self-discovery and connection with the world around you.
