I began my sculptural studies in 2003 as an apprentice, Metal Sculptor.  A strong interest in nature and science took me to San Francisco in 2006 where I began my studies of flammable liquids and fire effects. Establishing strong working relationships with fine art foundries It is at this time that I first understood that metal sculpture was the unquestionable voice, which would allow me to be true to myself while also giving back. My sculptures express my strong affinity with nature and my genuine love for life and humanity. I sculpt from my heart and  use nature’s raw forms to narrate love and joy through my pieces. I often find beauty and truth in life’s challenging times. A passionate observation of the human soul and of what life gives. Together with my sculpting skills and the voice inside, it has enabled me to give back and to create sculptures that express true emotion. I've been fortunate to be able to show my art throughout Ca. In Art Exhibits, Museums, Art Walks, Festivals, Private Shows and other events. While creating and showing I have been advancing my skills through classes in welding and metal fabrication.  I’m especially proud of studying under Gene Winfield, one of Los Angeles greatest metal fabricators. Before the stay at home order I was studying under Jack Compton to get my structural steel certification. To one day be able to create giant public art pieces in Los Angeles.
