I enjoy bringing life to old and broken tools and other found materials, combining a passion for art and love for welding. The thing I like the most is finding and using manufactured shapes, placing them in new ways, cutting and welding them into something entirely new and original. The foundation of my art is in repurposing old materials. For instance, for my “Cutlery Carnivore”  (a large bird of prey) I repurposed over a thousand pieces of discarded silverware.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At 25 years old, I am just at the beginning of my art career, but I’ve been welding since I was 14. I’m only in my third year of calling myself a metal artist. I’ve been very encouraged by people’s responses to my work, and I am excited to see where this journey may take me.
