I blow-torch and weld metal into shape, then color it with a torch using a mixture of polymer enamels and epoxy sealants. The smooth, high-gloss finish is the result of heating the surface during curing.

I truly enjoy what I do.  My philosophy is to create unique, attractive, and affordable art that transmits the “soul” that I put into each piece.

The coloring process I use on my metal pieces was born in 2004, when a friend who worked with copper enameling was diagnosed with a degenerative eye disease, and could no longer safely use her kiln.  My attempt to develop a method of “cold” enameling for her didn’t pan out, but it resulted in the process I now use, which my friend named “flame-chased metal.”

All my work is created at my home studio in a small artists’ community in Bradenton, Florida.  Each piece is individually handmade, using recycled materials wherever I can (roofing metal, discarded wine bottles, fencing wire, etc.)  No two pieces are exactly alike.
