As a self-representing artist, I offer unique, handmade, original and signature series metal sculptures for the modern decorator. My endeavors began in 2003 while working for the United States Air Force. At that time, I started experimenting with bending, cutting and grinding decorative aluminum panels after designing and building an experimental electro-polishing fixture. As time persisted, I began developing wall art on the weekends, occasionally selling them through online auctions. As the popularity and demand for my sculptures grew, I began expanding my capabilities and offerings, including steel, copper and bronze wall art and free-standing sculptures; with both natural metal finishes and vibrant painted finishes. My work is now collected in over 40 countries around the globe, and by celebrities, professional athletes, and fortune 500 companies worldwide.
Our fine metal art business consists of a design and fabrication studio (which also facilitates the photography, packaging and worldwide shipping capabilities) in Cincinnati, Ohio, and also a nearby fine art gallery featuring my work along with a few other talented contemporary artists. In 2010 my facility was expanded from 1200 to over 3500 square feet of modern industrial work space. To accentuate my ultra-modern artwork style, I designed the new building with contemporary minimalistic architecture.
One of the most critical elements of my metal grind patterns is the consistency. Other artists have come and gone in the industry, attempting to replicate many of my grind patterns. None have been able to achieve the remarkable precision, surprising consistency, ability to accurately recreate, or the level of depth and dimension that my grinds have.
I color much of my artwork using a transparent painting process with atomized acrylic spray, so that the grind patterns are vibrantly reflected through the paint in a large spectrum of colors—I personally developed this technique, and remain the only metal artist in the industry with this capability.
