A career in graphic design after a childhood of cardboard and sticky tape makes for a lifetime of creating things. Steel is an unforgiving medium, but it rewards with something not only aesthetically pleasing but scarily robust and brutal.
Every day that I work with steel and my imagination, I get better at combining them. If I replicate a piece, is it the same? - not exactly. Is it better? - possibly, but the meshing of art and the moment will always play the biggest part.
