During my 35 year career I have worked in the welding field working with metals. I occasionally welded gifts for family members and friends, but basically viewed welding as a job but nothing more.

My perception changed on 3/10/08 when my wife and I were notified that our only son was murdered in California on Venice Beach. With the stress from this, along with the stress from work….. sleep was nearly impossible.  So after a while I ended up in the shop during those restless nights.  It was then that “Welding” began to ease some of the grief and my creativity was awakened and I began to transform into an artist and metal sculptor.

As I began to create metal art I found that I wanted to create unique pieces of functional and non-functional art.

Each one of my pieces is individually designed, cut, shaped, welded by hand and is a challenge I truly enjoy. Every piece is truly an original, and no two pieces are alike.

I started making western style rustic pieces and have also been making sculptures and jewelry.

The best thing is being able to create something out of nothing, and making people happy with my art.

My pieces are great for the environment and have been constructed mostly with re-claimed materials.
