“I call myself a Wireist. I make 3 dimensional sculptures, mostly figurative, using various gauges of annealed steel wire. I literally “draw in the air”. I started using this wire when I lived in Los Angeles and was making jewelry that was featured in a few galleries around LA, San Francisco and Japan. I was invited to participate in a figurative show at one of the galleries representing me. I made a couple of 7 foot long figures using my wire and detailing them with primary color glass marbles. This intrigued me very much and soon I was making wire people anywhere from 3 feet to 10 feet tall.
I am inspired by mostly everything; movies, artists, the landscape, comedians, children…with a special interest in graphic novels.
I have been working with wire for 26 years and the possible imagery is endless, like doodling.”
