What I’m Working On:
I am a self-taught artist, going on 24 years, working in copper. Inspired by the beauty of nature above and below water, I form fish of any species and other aquatic wildlife, and suns and hearts, some of which are mounted on rustic barn wood. My work is hand-formed and flame-painted, then sealed to preserve colors and deter oxidation.
