About

Art Should Be Fun!

I am a sculptor, a founder, a draftsman, a painter, a printmaker, and an inventor. And I was a painting contractor, specializing in painting barns, for more than 45 years. As a result of that, I have hundreds of empty 55-gal. paint barrels that I could not bear to throw away. Since I'm constantly asking myself "What if," one day it dawned on me that I could cut up those barrels and make flowers for the yard. Each one is hand-cut and painted, by me. That makes the process more interesting for me and you! I consider every flower a miniature abstract painting.

Once that part is done, my partner and fiancee, Sandy, selects the components to come up with the finished design. We never know what the results are going to be until the flower is actually assembled. Every flower we make is slightly different than the last ... we couldn't make two flowers alike if we tried. Serendipity!
