I’ve been working as an artist/blacksmith for about 20 years and I began as a student in Austin, Texas. I was fortunate to find work in the craft with a small architectural firm where I learned the practice of building gates, railings, fire tools, and other forged utilitarian objects. After several years of working and feeling inspired, I wanted to move on and create a studio of my own. I settled on the East Coast where I was introduced to the craft show circuit. I now live in my hometown of Boise, Idaho where my studio practice has evolved. I regularly interact with art consultants, art service groups, and apply for commissions in public spaces.
