About the Artist

“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see”

R.W. Emerson

I am an artisan, composing the images of my imagination. Inspiration comes from

almost anything, nature, architecture, emotion, or even a t-shirt logo. Cutting, bending,

welding and grinding the steel to form the shapes, then adding the paint to highlight

contours and enhance the negative spaces. The sun adds light and shadows as the time of

day and seasons change, making them come to life.

Everyone sees something a little different in my works, which is good because we are

all unique. Vivid colors and fanciful pieces, weather tucked into a corner of the yard, or a

focal point in a landscape, they are meant to bring a smile to someone’s face. If it does,

then I have accomplished what I have set out to do. Life is short, enjoy it!
