I have been creating things most of my adult life in my vocation as a design environmental engineer, involving both function and aesthetics. From the structural/architectural aspect of my design experience arose a curiosity and interest in shapes and forms, particularly those of geometric configuration. Initially, single dimensional sketches and drawings of complicated geometric configurations challenged my imagination, followed by experimentation with three dimensional media, mostly utilizing material common to my engineering projects. Color also became a curiosity as to how it could impact the interpretation of an image. And more recently, I have chosen wood as a media of expression, particularly commercial timbers retrieved from very old structures.
