Art and I met up at an early age of about 9. By 18, I knew the path, and by 25, I was in the business.
I've steadily continued my jewelry profession, adding sculpture and painting along the way. My specialty is engraved jewelry with a rainbow of gemstones, including high grade turquoise.
The beauty and humor of animals is a constant theme in my work. My design style has an Art Nouveau filter that smooths out my line.
My sculpture is made from my vast library of visual solutions of objects with a rich, sun-sanded patina, or what others might just call, rusty junk, left behind in the Wild West. I truly have a lust for rust.
The rich sun-sanded patinas direct his use of color. Wall art, furniture, lamps, and animals are ever-being welded in my studio.
Custom guitars are also part of my sculptural repertoire. They rock, they roll, they're out of control.
My current line of jewelry is called Romantic Rust. This on-going series includes cuffs from license plates, chains, and Bola Ties with hood ornaments.
Each piece is one-of-a-kind-out-of-my-mind.
