About & Contact
Thanks for visiting my gallery. I started creating metal sculptures at the age of 16 in an automotive recycling yard using old auto parts. Over the years I dabbled in functional art using objects at hand.
As time marched on, like many others, I moved away from physical art and became a practitioner of a variety occupations. My journey back to my love of creating metal objects took me through a few careers, Auto and truck mechanic, shop forman, service manager, electronics technician, prototype mechanic, programmer, systems engineer, project manager, consultant and eventually business owner
In 2001, when the love of my life opened Beads Amore', a store dedicated to helping people create unique jewelry, I again started creating objects de art, This new journey eventually led me back to my primal love creating metal art. As i observed the practitioners who were teaching this art I realized they were mediocre teachers at best. Feeling that I had forgotten more than they were teaching I came to the conclusion that my love of creating could merge one of my later loves teaching.
Now as I find it more difficult to be mobile and travel as extensively as I have since 2009, I am moving on the the next stage of my life, I will continue to teach, create new tools, videos and to create unique and exclusive pieces.
I hope you find something here that will bring you or a loved one joy and tranquility.
