Artist Statement

I try to separate myself from limitations on what metal sculpture is or should be. I simply like to make things and enjoy the process of transforming nothing into something. I feel that true art is inspired by God’s greatness and the awesomeness of His Creation.
I choose to work with metal because of my admiration for the work of Charlie Lucas. While our work is very different, the feelings behind the images produced are often the same.
Metal can be uncooperative, and more times than not, I find myself working at the mercy of the piece Itself. The decisions I make about a piece are based on what I feel is right, but often a piece seemingly speaks to what it wants, how it wants to look, and when its finished. What I enjoy most about what I do is being blessed with the ability to create the ideas I receive.
