Thomas Edison said, “To invent, you need a good imagination and a junk pile.”
When I create, I use Thomas Edison’s adage, “To invent, you need a good imagination and a junk pile”. I weld discarded parts from the junk pile together and soon pistons became horse parts, bicycle chains became weeping willow strands, and motorcycle tanks become a rhinoceros.
Sometimes the part will inspire the art I create, and other times I go to the junk pile to find parts to create what I envision. I never know what will be incorporated into a finished sculpture.
My unique style and attention to detail make my sculptures “anatomically correct”. I take engine cranks, gears, chains, lifters, antiques, television parts and transform them into a recognizable animal or object.
My art can truly be considered “green” or “re-cycled art”. I love taking something that is deemed “useless” and creating art that can be enjoyed by many.
