Artist Statement

Although I started out as a painter I attended college at UCSC, where I focused primarily on bronze casting. I accidently found myself leaning into 3D design and fell in love with bronze and never looked back. Overall, I make my work to be an even-keeled leveling of light and dark. As a former sailboat captain, I am influenced by my connection to my community and the immense depth of inspiration drawn from sailing and the ocean. Today, I work at the Bronze Works foundry in Santa Cruz as well as in my workshop in Davenport, CA. I founded Whatknot Studios as a way to create a brand for my work and my style in 2018, and have been working and taking commissions ever since.
