My work is impulsive by nature, yet it becomes refined through multiple stages of manipulation and evaluation.  References to the body can be seen through use of symmetry and proportion.  When exposed to fire, the surfaces begin to tell a story of time, space, and chaos.  Within this investigation, function becomes of utmost importance; although the surfaces become quite exciting. Through this process I have found a state of personal equilibrium.
