After loosing my Father to a tragic car accident in 2005, I realized how short life is. I needed something to channel all of my pain and sorrow into. While working in the corporate world I started to teach myself how to weld in my free time. The artistic side came natural to me as I have been creating things my whole life. I worked in the interiors business for 15 years as a custom furniture maker and upholsterer. I soon learned how soothing it was to me as my first piece came to life, it was a rendition of my father playing golf. This sculpture, which is pictured, was a memorial for my family to always remember my father by. He resides peacefully at my mothers house playing golf in the backyard. The feeling I got looking at the finished piece told me to follow my dreams. I knew I was hooked. I started making pieces to give as gifts. After years of people telling me I should sell my sculptures, I finally decided to follow my heart and start sharing them with the world.
