"I use patina to create wall art on copper and brass"
I enjoy using a variety of metals — cast iron, bronze, and aluminum for my sculptures and copper, brass as well as welded and forged steel to create art for the wall. These creations enhance homes, decorate offices, coffee shops, and restaurants, and provide focal points for patios and gardens.
My current work—Magic of Patinas—explores the thin layers of color that develop over time on metal after it is exposed to heat or air. I enjoy mixing natural as well as man-made patinas, always striving to create a sense of breathtaking imperfection and random beauty that is so awe inspiring in nature. The causes and consequences of global warming and the effect of toxic substances on nature is increasingly becoming a subtext in my work.
