The work I create comes from my imagination. Anything can trigger an idea, an overheard expression, something I see on the street or the tin itself; literally anything. These ideas get sketched out and eventually end up as colorful and darkly humorous narrative works in re-purposed decorative sheet metal. Used metal food containers, gleaned from many sources; are cut up then reconfigured into something that reads like a page from a picture book.
I was born in California, lived in Mexico and after nearly dying in Seattle my commitment to tin work has never been more focused.
