My love for the arts has always been in my blood. I am a self taught craftsman, fabricator, welder and artist. I never like to call myself an artist but people always say that I am. I love to re-purpose things into functional, whimsical and re-useable art. I studied at the school of trial and error. Worked in stained glass for 25 years. I am a retired auto worker and married 33 years to my bride. 3 children and 3 grandchildren.
