As a child, I grew up outside. Everyday was an adventure colored by waving prairie grass, sun warmed rocks, gurgling creeks, and the dappled shadows of cedar trees. Raised in the flint hills of Kansas, I found an early love of the outside world. Growing up with the freedom to spend every waking hour in this environment gave me an awareness to the subtle details that can be found all around. As an adult, I work with elements found in nature to capture the fleeting moments of the casual web that is our world. Memory, experience, and time combine with my love of metal to shape the pieces I pursue.
