I love what I'm able to do with a welder. Working cold welded steel is a challenge, but also immediate and spontaneous. It has a unique personality. I am a maker. I have always had an insatiable drive to make things with my hands, with pencils, paints, wood, leather, and now metal. My school years were filled with shop and art classes. My early career was construction. Now what my hands make is art, and I am loving it. The more familiar I become with steel’s personality, the softer it becomes. It becomes more of a cooperative participant freeing my imagination to turn inner vision to tangible reality.
