My current work, “Magic of Patinas”  explores those thin layers of color that develop on metal after it is exposed to heat or air over time.  I enjoy mixing natural as well as man-made patinas, always striving to create that sense of breathtaking imperfection and random beauty that is so awe inspiring in the world around us.  I believe in the causes and consequences of global warming and the effect of toxic substances on nature is becoming an increasing subtext in my work.
