Artist Style:     

  • I consider my style “naturalist” for lack of a better word. I enjoy incorporating elements of nature into my work. Nature is the product of the Master Creator and my  meager attempt the imitate nature is as they say “the highest form of flattery”. To do so using a unyielding material like mild steel or iron adds an extra dimension and drama.
