I am a metal artist living with my husband in the foothills of Fresno, California. I got started in metal when I changed careers in 2000 to pursue welding.
During that time, I had an opportunity to work with a local blacksmith/artist and was exposed to the world of metal "art." I was blown away when I saw the scope of what a person could create out of metal and I wanted to be part of that! I started my business with the intention of creating unusual metal and copper art with various metal working techniques from welding to forging to repousse.
I particularly enjoy making things out of metal that people would not expect to see made out of metal.
Having been fortunate to have gotten some interesting commissions this year, I feel like I am also becoming pretty well versed in the techniques of high relief repousse and chasing.
My goals with this process are to get away from the more traditional themes of subject matter, such as the Arts and Crafts era styles. I want to challenge myself with more unique subject matter and details, particularly figurative work. I also want to start working on some fold forming pieces.
