Artist’s Bio: I have been making art since I was 7 years old. I am persistently curious and want to know how to do everything. It's the best work I can imagine: I get to learn, have fun, work at home, make new things and solve problems. I love the garden culture that permeates the San Diego area so, I make outdoor art. Using combinations of welded metal, clay, fused and mosaic glass with patinas, metal coatings and paint, I create colorful, highly textured and one-of-a-kind pieces that flow into the landscape.
