About the Artist

My art is often inspired by nature. I have welded pieces that look like wood, rocks, clouds, rain, water, animals and human figures. Capturing the essence is more important to me than strict realism.

Steel is my choice of material, because of its fluidity and forgiveness. Once the design process begins, clarity comes from handling the metal. Many of my materials for functional pieces include rusty steel, discarded parts or scraps from the welding certification processes…re-purposed.
