I consider myself an outsider artist. I have been drawing since my earliest childhood memories. I got interested In sculpting with metal and other materials in my senior year of high school. I enrolled in vocational welding class and since then I have been working with metal. For me it's all about the processes that are involved when working with metal. I have been welding and fabricating metal for 26 years . I have worked on projects ranging from mock submarines for the navy to artificial rocks and trees for zoos. This is the third time back to Michigan and the longest time spent living in one place, that place is Detroit. I was drawn to Detroit for the industrial space available for artists who require such space at an affordable price. Detroit has turned out to be a very inspirational place with an incredible amount of talent in all forms of creativity. I consider myself to be in the right place at the right time with Grand Rapids and Artprize being so close to Detroit.
