His repertoire is mainly interior décor such as mirrors, tables, candle holders etc. but he is constantly inspired with new ideas & techniques so those creative wings continue to fly! He has also experimented with garden art to bring a bright splash of color to the outdoors with bold metal flowers & butterflies as well as small entry gates flowing with vines and leaves to blend well with any garden.
Ivan works & resides with his wife, Denise, in Burleson, Texas.
