I received my art education from Indiana State University in Terre Haute, IN. I also attended the San Francisco Art Institute in San Francisco, CA. for two summers. I received my welding certification from Ivy Tech Community College in Terre Haute, IN.
I currently sell my work at juried Art Fairs mainly in the midwest.
Welding one of the pieces from the Chair Series.
I use a plasma torch to hand cut original designs from steel, stainless steel and reclaimed metals. Each piece is hand picked or salvaged which adds to the unique and personal appeal of the finished sculpture. Surface treatments vary from rusted surfaces and applied patinas, to time worn original colors of the recycled metals. I also use powder coating to create a high gloss, dynamic and long wearing surface. The stainless steel is hand polished to create interesting surfaces for reflection of light and shadow.
