My goal is to bring awareness and recognition to the art of wire manipulation.

I have been traveling and studying wire bending techniques all my adult life. There are many different types and styles of wire sculptures. Some sculptures are simple, maybe a contour line drawing expressed in wire form, as in the outline of a dog. Sculptures are created with a technique that manipulate one piece of wire so long that it is a challenge, yes, a puzzle, to follow the wire from the beginning to the end. Defining a wink in the simple dog sculpture or admiring the movement of the wire as it constructs a waddle under the beak of a 14 inch finished green rooster, the aesthetic value is truly in the eye of the beholder. As the artist, I have been given to task on the character of the subject to make a unique relationship allowing the viewer to feel emotion and statement of the wire's line.

Displaying sculptures online allows the public greater access not only to wire sculptures but also to the various processes involved in the art of wire bending. Many galleries are hesitant to display wire art for various reasons which limits the proliferation of the art form into the mainstream art scene. I personally work with some wonderful galleries that encourage my movement forward and help expand exposure of wire sculpture.
