My love for metalworking began at an early age. Growing up in a small town in Iowa, I spent many hours helping my father in his blacksmith shop. At the time, I didn’t realize how much he was influencing my life ambitions.
My art is easy to enjoy and simple to understand. I like to design pieces that have meaning and that reflect universal aspects of nature and man’s spiritual connection to it. Private commissions and site- specific projects are my favorites to create.
Utilizing my degrees in Interior Design and Art History I spent much of my career as a freelance designer. As an artist and past gallery owner I am passionate about art education and public art advocacy.
I have had the fortunate opportunities to sell work to many private commissions, as well as, the City of Vista, City of San Diego, Ocean Hills Country Club, Rady’s Children’s Hospital and others.
