Ann Arbor, MI, United States

I am a college Chemistry professor and love to teach and work with LEGO. I specialize in LEGO mosaics, all done free-hand (no computer generated images) so each work takes many months. My first work, "Smaug", (originally by the Hildebrant brothers) was inspired by my sister Cate, she died from breast cancer but was a huge J.R.R. Tolkien fan and also loved LEGO. I also work with children in workshops and summer camps where we combine LEGO and science, having the children make models of DNA and frog dissections and other scientific models. Many of my LEGO mosaics have been on display at the Cranbrook Art Museum, the Flint Institute of Arts and the Midland Art Center.
