Biography:

I’ve been making abbreviated line drawings of just about any subject on just about any surface in just about any medium since I can remember. I started using wire in 1972 and have been making Wire Wall Murals on a commission basis ever since. 
 
A Wire Wall Mural is the final step in a simplification process that starts with a photograph or group of photographs. I make and remake the line drawing to emphasize only the essence of the subject. 
 
I ask, myself: What is it about this image that makes it unique. Then I strip away the lines that are not required to convey that quality. Finally, like the poet who reviews every word, I re-examine every turn and curve as I bend the wire into that image -- a large line drawing in space. The final installation, a solid line in front of a moving shadow, has scale enough to suit a large space without dominating the room. 
 
After I make a wire wall sculpture I hang it up and live with it for a while. Sometimes I cut away additional material, add more, or change bends before I consider the sculpture ready for a home, gallery, or museum. I say: Nothing is permanent, as long as you have pliers.
