  • Contact

  • My work starts out as print and organically morphs towards an installation or sculpture of some sort – many times site-specific.

    Much of the work is left to chance or the elements to be created with as little as possible interference from my side.

    Exploding. Imploding. Gap. Void. Violence. Destruction. Detachment.
