Making art has always been my passion. My passion ebbs and flows naturally through my life, leading me to become a jeweler by trade. Metal sculpture grew organically from that occupation and spoke to my eye for fine details. As I grow and continue to wrestle with what it means to be a human in our infinite universe, my pieces continue to evolve to express how I feel about my own existence in an ever changing world. The piece I’ve submitted is a small Light Rail train car, the same that I one rode every weekend to a friend’s house. I kept the tickets whenever the conductors forgot to collect them. When the friendship slowly burned out and we grew apart, I kept the tickets. Now they rest in this piece, a reliquary holding not a piece of religious history, but a part of my own emotional history. A tiny monument to a relationship and a symbol of closure. It is a warm copper color and it reminds me of a warm and happy time in my life.
