What began as a quest to learn the art of blacksmithing has led me to a passion that I never would have imagined.... creating junk metal sculptures for home and garden.

After learning the basics of Blacksmithing I took a couple of welding classes and the rest sort of transpired from there.

"I love keeping the craft of the Blacksmith alive.

I'm thrilled that I'm able to combine my blacksmithing and welding skills into an Old world meets New World art".

"It's just amazing how much we throw away that still has a useful life. Sometimes you have to look at things in a totally different perspective",

I think that applies to most things in life, not just creating "junk metal art".
