I am passionate about God and his love for the poor - whether it be those who are poverty stricken or poor in spirit. It's drawn me in to make portraits of people that are left out or that ran out. Confused about, everything. Jesus is sometimes the only person left loving these people and I want you and them to know that, someone is still there and you will never be alone.
I've always made stuff. I made my first forge and started shaping steel when I was 11 entirely by myself. I love pouring over old literature about making things. From a time when you weren't given a "Kit" you made the kit. Handmade tools and machines just get me so pumped. Check out some old water-powered helve-hammers. Blacksmiths would take entire tree trunks and made massive hammers that could move large chunks of steel faster…
