Every artist looks at his or her work though a unique prism..... Art is timeless and it releases creativity and provokes passion. My inspiration for sculpture can be found in each piece which is made utilizing a variety of skills including welding, shaping metal , metal etching and sketching. Each sculpture is different than any other. In my mind each one is special. I do not use methods of mass production. I am proud to put my name on each and every sculpture knowing that the purchaser is acquiring a work of art like no other.
