Throughout my life I have always been aware that I have a unique and unusual way of perceiving the world around me. I was blessed with a talent to express this through art. After the use of several mediums, I have found that metal holds the key to unlock my creativity.
Just as metal is strong and rigid, it can also be soft and pliable. And, with the right application, it can even be made to dance!
Please take a moment and join me on a journey through the movement, textures, colors and emotions of metal.
As I truly believe, my creations come from my heart, to my head, to my hands, to the world.
