About

I have worked with various mediums, but my favorite is steel. I love its strength, beauty, and forgiveness in forming. If I don't like the way something turns out, its not a problem, I just throw in some new welds and a few well placed grinds and the crisis is averted. I constantly experiment in my creations. Sometimes I focus on large animal forms for outdoor displays, other times I am weaving bits of wire to conjure up insects and fish. I build human forms from scrap metals and underwater fish murals that incorporate rods of steel and plate formed lily pads.

I have been told that as an artist I am undisciplined, I don't fall into a single method or style. The so called "experts" in the art field tell me that I don't follow the rules of being a professional artist. I will say this again ,because I never get tired of arguing this point, there are NO RULES when it comes to art, period…

Art is not subject to laws, conformity, or any of the other rules of civilization. However I admit that my artwork does follow a single rule, mine. I hope you enjoy my work and feel free to contact me about anything art related, I like to hear from patrons and artists alike.
