Mechanical sculpture exploring the world using mechanisms as metaphors for the human body. Working at the junction of digital fabrication (CNC machining and 3D printing) and traditional craft skills, each device offers an interactive experience to viewers.

I have been making things since I was 6 years old. I carved wood, I sewed clothing, I made jewelry, I wove baskets. I have an MFA in metalsmithing from Southern Illinois University Carbondale, and I've been making mechanical sculpture for 15 years.
