me in hat.




Thank you for your interest in the work of my imagination and remembrance of the people, their places, dreams, desires and determinations.

I grew up surrounded by creativity as a way of life and survival. I still see joy in the forgotten everyday tools of our lives. My iron, brass, shale and leather sculpture works are reused cast-offs from candleholders, lamps, bed frames and things off the “What-Not Shelf”.

The Lord has been good and faithful in blessing me to create. He will do the same for you. I simply asked HIM in prayer to reveal my gifts.
