I am a full time sculptor who lives and works in small rural town in West Texas. My work is drawn from a lifetime of observing the landscape and culture in which I live; the stories, legends, flora, fauna, and people. Typically narrative in nature, my work (while technically crafted) evokes familiar memories from the viewer. My grandfather brought the first arc welder to my part of Texas and I grew up with skilled craftsmen teaching me the technique and processes. Utilizing such a solid and firm medium, I try to inspire fascination by making steel appear soft, or light, or tactile.
