at his studio jonathan employs a host of tools and techniques, mainly self taught, to create pieces that invite the viewer to touch the work.  inspired largely by our landscape, both natural and manmade, the artist produces art that will constantly present new insights into its self.  through the use of transitions in form, texture and material he attempts to compel the viewer to take in and touch every angle.  add to this the carefully considered effects of nature: light, rain, snow and anything else that falls from the sky onto the pieces, and for the thoughtful viewer this work will grow well beyond the seeds jonathan planted with hammer and chisel.
