My mission is to advocate for and donate my art commissions to individuals in my community
who need financial help in overcoming an unexpected catastrophic health crisis.
It’s rare that I ever use new, clean, perfect steel and materials. Whether it’s the character of used, pitted, nicked, scratched, weathered, bent, worn and mangled steel, or, some old copper pipes, a copper roof shingle, or, an antique barn joist,
post or any other old piece of wood...to breathe both life and purpose back into
these materials and give them some design and beauty…is very satisfying.
Sometimes I may use water jets or laser cutters or some other modern technology,
but, I prefer handheld tools, they seem to give me a more intimate relationship with
the materials I'm working with. A literal "hands on" approach leads to a more truly handmade one of kind look vs. an all to common technology based machined look. I’m constantly trying to reinvent how I approach making visuals, assembling shapes, creating art, with whatever materials I may have at that particular time.
