Scott is a Dallas, Texas artist that uses found metal in his work.
Art provides a venue to express his passions and a medium for continual introspection.
By listening to the metal and understanding the creation process, he discovers
shapes and forms previously unknown.
Scott attempts to express a sense of sentience in every piece, using a hard, non malleable medium, he finds forms and shapes that express emotions.
Metal sculpting allows him to create a space that reflects his perspective and a process
that resembles his approach to life.
