Artist Statement

I am a modern day Renaissance Artist, meaning I draw, paint, cook, do architectural design along with digital art and photography. Now while my Paintings on Canvas and Mixed Media Art are becoming increasingly popular, I’m best known for what I call “Green Metal Art” it’s where I take scraps of metal and / or mechanical parts deemed unusable by most standards and weld them into various artistic shapes, forms, figures and concepts. I believe in whenever possible take materials that may have been otherwise discarded and transfer them in to beautiful art. It’s my way of recycling trash into artistic treasures.
