I am a senior undergrad at West Virginia University, studying sculpture. I started my college career attending architecture school but quickly found it was not the right path for me. After a few years off I found that art was what I was made to do. Since starting in the sculpture program here at WVU I have found my aesthetic niche in environmental and public sculpture. I find that using natural materials brings me closer to the outdoors and what I love, and presenting the sculpture in public locations allows me to interact with every day people who might otherwise not see much art at all. For me this interaction with the public is the most rewarding aspect of being an artist. I wish to bring my natural sculpture style to Grand Rapids this fall and share what I can create with a whole new community of people.
