I am an IT guy with a passion for abstract art. I have always been a creative person my notebooks were filled with doodles of shapes with no real purpose other than to satisfy my eye and perspective. I grew up never really taking any time to pursue art in any way. I got busy with raising a family and building a career. One day I pulled out a welder I got in a car deal I made earlier in the year and tried to make something for my wife. Things just grew from there. I sold my car restorations projects and started creating metal sculptures.
I use scrap steel as my medium. I am a regular at the recycling center and a big fan of bulk trash days in the neighborhood. I have been know to frequent Goodwill as well to pick up all of those household items that I can deconstruct and weld back together in a way that makes sense to me.
I enjoy my time in the city and I am inspired by graffiti artists, industrial buildings and just flowing shapes I see in daily life. My eye tells me what is right and wrong, always striving to give my pieces a sense of movement even as static objects. I do not restrict myself. I never start with drawing only a vague thought of size. I let the metal tell me what it wants to be. I know it sounds odd but I can see it as I build.
I hope you enjoy!
