Born in San Francisco, and living most of my life near the ocean in Santa Cruz, CA, I have always enjoyed working with metals. I combine my metal working skills with my love for the ocean, surfing, and creating imaginative characters. The result of blending these passions can be seen in my sculptures. My waves, surfers, paddle boarders, sea creatures, flying warriors, and other unique characters are all hand sculpted out of all sorts of recycled metal. My hope is that when people look at my sculptures, it will open their imagination to the past, the future, and the unknown. More of my work can be seen at wavesofsteel.net.
"It's truly magical what the ocean can do for me. It's powerful, beautiful, and awesome. We are so fortunate to be part of it. You know you cannot conquer the ocean, but you'd like to try. You fear it , and love it at the same time." ~Jim Herbert
