My work is a result of an overwhelming desire to transform the space which surrounds me. It is this desire to discover both a visual and a physical harmony that drives me to redefine space.

Most of my work explores the use of natural and man-made components. I find that combining these two components allows me to create refined compositions which may only be achieved through their partnership. My hope is that through my work I introduce beauty which displaces the banal. I want to breath life into others by revealing the hidden potential which often lies dormant within the ordinary and common. -Larry Cole
