My father made metal sculptures all his life and was an incredibly creative man. I think he passed on to me that love for metalwork. I started by making medieval armor and shields reproductions and then knives for many years. I guess it was the path I had to take to end up here, making sculptures like him.
I use a great many techniques like metalsmithing, machining, welding, engraving and jewelry making among many others. That is part of the appeal of sculptures for me.
As far as what I make, it can be just about anything. Nature is a great source of inspiration but a great many things from day to day life also fuel my imagination.
I would love for my art to makes
you feel something. Maybe through fond memories or imagining
wonderful stories and adventures. And who knows, even spark
the desire to experience for yourself the joy of creating
something with your hands.
