Donald found wire art by accident more than 5 years ago. As he was working in his studio, or more accurately, waiting for the muse, he found himself doodling with a piece of picture wire.

This fascinated him with the way it lent itself to the kind of gestural painting of human form he was exploring. He quickly discovered aluminum and steel screening to create more forms.

His technique developed into hand working the forms into human landscapes that reflect the intricacies of muscle and attitude. From here they are manipulated in light and shadow. This creates the completed sculpture that exists in the physical world of the surface and delineation of form with the shadow that reflects the sculpture and interacts with the form creating a combined new sculpture.
