In my spare time, I enjoy drawing, sculpting and furniture making.  I primarily do artwork for myself as an exercise. I prefer mixed-media sculpture in a model scale and abstract pencil drawing inspired by the surrounding landscape. I also enjoy constructing mobiles from found materials, pieces of copper, and recycled wire. I have exhibited my sculptures and artwork at Pennsylvania State University (Berks Campus) and City Folk Gallery in Lancaster. I have been influenced by the works of Alexander Calder, George Nakashima, Gerhard Richter, Richard Serra, and Wharton Esherick.
