I am 44 years old & have been a full-time welder for about 25 years. I had a negative event take place in my life In going through that trying time, about two years ago I found my passion using my welding & fabrication skills & started trying to make a 3-D sculpture which is the deer head/stump combo piece. I stood back & looked at it & realized I had a new-found talent I never knew I had. It all started in a little shed on my property before I lost my house. My life began to take on new meaning & purpose when I started posting my art on social media.... I donated it, gave it away & sold some pieces. People were really responding to what I created. Life started looking up. I was feeling better, it really was my sanity. I then met my now-fiancé who supplied a garage for me to work in & have been creating art in just about any leisure time I have after working 40 hours a week. It made me realize that this is what my passion is.....it motivates me & inspires others to go out & discover what their true passion in life really is. I've finally found my happy self through it all!
