I enjoy the variety of metal. As an artist I have cast iron, bronze and aluminum for my sculptures and welded and forged steel to craft art and furniture for inside as well as the outdoors. These creations enhance homes, decorate offices, coffeeshops and restaurants and are focal points for patios and gardens.
My current work, “Magic of Patinas” explores the thin layers of color that develop over time on metal after it is exposed to heat or air. I enjoy mixing natural as well as man-made patinas, always striving to create a sense of breathtaking imperfection and random beauty that is so awe inspiring in nature. The causes and consequences of global warming and the effect of toxic substances on nature is increasingly becoming a subtext in my work.
