My artwork is something that I love to create. I love the simplicity and peace that plasma cutting brings into my life. Finding inspiration from nature and patterns I have managed to create a variety of landscape scenes featuring trees, mountains and wildlife integrated into a picture representative of Canada’s natural beauty.
It is my passion and I draw on experiences to create the pieces that I do. Floral designs in a variety of sizes, based on the reclaimed materials I choose are interesting and unique because they are carved out of various found objects.
The way I create one of my pieces starts with inspiration. I love finding old scrap metal in various forms that I can reclaim. These can include old saws, shovels, paint cans, wheelbarrows, 45 gallon drums, steel shelving units and even metal umbrella tables. Working with material that was seen as serving no purpose after it had reached its end again offers a comfort in knowing that I have made a difference for the environment by re purposing old found objects.
It offers a variety of one of a kind art that is all hand made. Not to mention the uniqueness when someone looks at my art and then realizes what it used to be. I feel this gives people a way to relate to my artwork by making them think about what something was. It personally gives me a powerful meaning that even though something was viewed as old and useless doesn’t mean that it is, instead it could be transformed and made into something beautiful. It provides a contrast of floral and intricate designs into old farm tools that showcases what used to be used for work can now be transformed into art. All it needed was a bit of inspiration and love.
