My sculptures and wall art are inspired by nature, life and the uniqueness of the reclaimed wood I use.
I enjoy the specific challenge of transforming old and rustic materials such as reclaimed redwood into contemporary sculptures and fine art. In my work I leverage the architectural qualities of the wood by laminating wood boards into larger blocks, sculpting organic shapes and exploring dynamic grain and natural color patterns. The old wood I am using has scratches, cracks, knots and other imperfections that are similar to real life. Every piece of wood is like a person, with its unique character, challenges and strengths. I yearn to give the wood a new life and I hope my sculptures and wall art inspire people to find a new awareness, purpose and joy in their own life. My art should also set an example that sustainability and re-use of material is not just a necessity, but a beautiful and inspiring part of our existence and future.
