I painted as a child, and created functional metal art in my early teens, receiving numerous awards. Focusing on technical education and subsequent career, I spent the next 20 years away from art. I found myself eventually returning to metal, yet locked in the creation of functional/decorative work.  I traveled through the United States coastal centers and Europe, studying the works of many great sculptures in the museums throughout, and became fixated on the works of Julio Gonzalez and David Smith. In time I found and was instructed in metal casting, culminating with iron. The collage of cast, constructed and found objects both tied my thoughts together and enabled me to lose all function from the forms I create.
