The mechanical aspect of my pieces is influences by Jules Verne and his many fantastic adventures. The surface design stems from finding beauty in the aged machinery of the industrial era, metal with a patina of rust and oil, and the drawing of my nephews.
The sculptural elements are from the things of childhood - a toy rocket ship that could take me to the moon, a plastic dinosaur that carries the soldier into battle, and robots, lots of robots.
