My fabricated relief sculptures are a result of my desire to work in a medium that is more spontaneous in nature, where I have total hands on control through the entire creative process. All of these works are created in stainless steel. I very rarely use tracing patterns or templates. I prefer to work directly on the steel and develop the design relying on the spark of creative intuition to develop the design. I believe this makes each piece stronger and more unique. The silver color of the metal gives me a wider range of contrast, it also enables me to use chemicals applied with heat and metal stains for the coloring. The layering of transparent colors and patterns makes these pieces very distinct.
