Wildlife and it's environment has been the consistent theme in my work over the years. Over the past several years I have been intrigued with depicting the motion and anatomy of wildlife in wire sculpture. In my Wild Wire series I use 16 gauge industrial wire and draw animals in 3D-sometimes using only one piece of wire. My goal is to use the wire to created elements that speak to the essence of a particular animal. I begin by breaking down the animal to it's unique motion, key features and personality that represents the animal. I enjoy telling a story in my pieces-whether it's a group of deer that got startled and bound away or a cheetah in hot pursuit of it's prey. The subject matter is endless in what is possible. By creating each piece I learn something about the animal and how best to represent it in it's form.
