An Artist must also be an instructor if he wants to be more than a craftsman. In this photo I am teaching my apprentice to spray hot powder metal on my newest abstract sculptural creation.
This abstract aluminum sculpture looks like a large coral reef.
Bird in Hand
This rusty steel abstract sculpture was created in 2008. Many of my sculptures start with a sketch; however this one is more of happenings.
The hardest part of one like this is getting started, but the most important thing is knowing when it is done. I know it may not be everyones cup of tea (Abstract Sculpture) but it is my hope that I can make everyone smile when they see it! Abstract Metal Sculpture should be enjoyable.

Sea Life and Spontinaeity
Orange Powder coated Aluminum
This colorful abstract sculpture is intended to portray the freedom an artist would have in a world without gravity. We could paint a 3D image in the air; spontaneity arises from my imagination with an effortless spontaneous expression. While metal working is anything but effortless, I have become one with my material, and worked with the material to create a sculpture that gives the viewer an airy weightless feeling.
Defying Gravity two
Sometimes art collectors like works that are sold and ask me to recreate them. Other times they like a work that is currently available but would perfer it be made from a different material or a larger size. The latter is the case with defying gravity two. The original was made out of very heavy steel and this commission was created out of .25" thick aluminum so it could be shipped to Canada.
The rainforest fountain
This project is a water feature for a sculpture park. The park is being created to provide the residence of a highrise community a place to relax and collect their thoughts. Art and the sound of falling water, along with green plants are key elements in renewing and refreshing the soul.
The Focus and the Distraction
A serious work in progress, about a subject that is taken far to lightly
