South Lyon, MI, United States

Hello. Metal Art is my passion. Creativity is my nature. Born and raised in south eastern Michigan, the auto industry has been a big influence on my artwork. Much of my metal sculptures are made from recycled automotive metal. Before I could drive, My Father, Richard, was teaching me to work on cars. Scrap parts and sheet-metal were plentiful around the shop. I learned to weld in high school and I held many welding jobs after graduating. I refined my skills by working in metal working fields like industrial fabricating, Sign fabrication, machining, and blacksmithing. Throughout my career art was my hobby and where my passion resided. My artistic side I inherited from My Mother, Anne, who is a very gifted painter and illustrator. Both of my Parents encouraged me from an early age to follow my dreams and my passion and I am happy to say that I am doing just that in becoming a full-time metal artist. With the sculptures I create I hope to inspire my audience to dream, expand their perceptions, and cause them to wonder beyond their current reality. Thank You, Jeff
