Metal artwork that speaks from the heart

I have always worked with my hands, from the time I was a teenager. For 35 years I provided for my family by building homes and doing remodels. I built log homes for awhile and also log furniture. Years of physical work took their toll on my back, so in 2009 I took a break from construction. I used the time to fulfill a dream I had of making a metal sculpture to put over our fireplace. It was my first time working with metal and I was hooked. I made more pieces, all large pieces, of different wildlife. At first, every piece was hand cut with a plasma cutter in many pieces and then welded together to form layers. This was extremely labor intensive and time consuming, making the pieces more expensive than we would like. Therefore, in 2011, we bought a CNC plasma cutting machine to do the cutting, and I simplified the pieces to require less welding. I also made a distinct move to more Christian artwork and things that portray my values. Now I am able to make pieces that more people can afford, but that still mean a lot to me. I am very blessed to be able to do what I love and speak of the One I love the most.

    As a Christian, father of four children, and grandfather of three, faith and family values are very important to me and inspire most of my artwork. After building homes for 35 years, I am enjoying expressing creativity through my metal pieces.

    As Jim's wife, I do everything he doesn't. I am a retired CPA, so I handle the bookkeeping and do most of the computer work. Since raising and home schooling our four children, I am happy to be busy helping Jim during the empty nest season.
