I use a variety of recycled and new materials and a variety of tools to persuade my materials into the shapes and sizes that fit my needs. My aim is to create as many products as I can using re-purposed or recycled materials. My work is mainly created from iron although at times I will add other materials as I am inspired to do so. I believe that I should be led by the creative process. Each new idea should be able to manifest in its own individual style.
I enjoy being outside in my spare time and many of my piece of home and garden art are inspired by the earth and nature. I love dragonflies, collecting rocks and vintage items of all sorts. Kayaking and paddling are two things that I am passionate about. I like things that are solid, grounded and lasting. Things that are connected to this wonderful, crazy, awesome world we live in. I wish that the pieces I create add some smiles to your day. It's all about the Journey.
I grew up on a dairy farm on the west coast of British Columbia and my favorite part of the day was always that unstructured time when my imagination could go wild. I would lay out in the middle of the field or find a hidden spot up in the hay loft and daydream for hours. As I got older this love of freedom never faded and inspires me create iron works art which produces enduring joy for the people who choose to take them home.
