My motto is Re-use and Amuse! I create whimsical characters out of scrap metal, found objects, old tools, and kitchenware using the oxyacetylene method of welding at the Chicago Avenue Fire Arts Center in Minneapolis. I enjoy hunting high and low to find “gems” at local scrap dealers, estate sales, friends’ castoffs, and truly found objects. My whimsical sculptures are friendly to the environment, unique, and generate smiles. I often laugh out loud while creating them. My goal is to share the fun and whimsy with others through my art.
In 2017 Butter Café of South Minneapolis commissioned a 4’x4’ butterfly sculpture. In 2016 I was interviewed by a local TV station www.fox9.com titled Artist Gives New Life To Scrap Metal. In 2014 and 2018 I won second place at the Minnesota State Fair Creative Activities Competition – Metal.
