Painted Steel

“Some of the flowers are standing tall some are drooping under their weight almost to the ground but yet the stems are strong and sturdy.”

Using blacksmith, welding techniques, and a spontaneous design method, I enjoy creating sculptures that have an organic look and balance to them out of found objects like rock, wood, and repurposed steel. Also currently displaying at Fresh Gallery in Springfield, MO, Componere Gallery in St. Louis, MO, Bluestem Gallery in Columbia, MO, and Grayson Home in Springfield, MO. I’m also tall, easy going, and hard working.​​
