Being called an artist is somewhat foreign to me…I have come by this title accidentally. What I love is “to create”. Because I live on a rural farm I have at my disposal unlimited supples of fantastic materials… so I turn old into new and recycle. I love rust and it features greatly in my work. I love working with my hands and get a great deal of pleasure out of creating “stuff “that other people admire, appreciate and would like to own.
I have the time, the energy, the desire, the tools and materials all at my fingertips and I get to play any time I wish…out of this has developed MY ART.
I see potential in rusty wire, old roofing iron, wood, concrete, polypipe…in fact anything that is available be it corks or pallets, I can see the possibilities to turn nothing into something desirable.
