I express the inherent aesthetics of science. My extensive travels in France and Asia bring additional influences. The art blends the organic nature of plants and animals with non-objective shapes and forms using found and new components.

My artistic mission introduces the public to information in a nontraditional context so they seek additional knowledge. The concepts emanate from multidisciplinary biomedical and artistic training.

Recent works depict aspects of genographic migration, genetic structure, and/or antibody action. I am a multidisciplinary artist working primarily in steel, stainless steel and bronze. I also create 2D works that incorporate metal components.
My large-scale public sculptures are in permanent collections of sculpture parks and two Chicago public schools, Chicago State University, a CTA subway station and a UC mini-park. I also have had long-term exhibits in the Koehnline Museum of Art, Lincoln Park, the Chicago campus of DePaul University and the Johnson, Vermont Sculpture Park.
Through my Metal-i-Genics Studio, I also create, design and fabricate steel interior and exterior design elements, furniture and sculpture stands for commercial and residential properties.
