Well, it's a long story (they always are), but I'll try to give you the highlights.
I grew up in a small town on Long Island, New York. As the second youngest of seven kids, I was encouraged to be creative and resourceful. Drawing, sculpting, knitting ... I was always full of the need to create using whatever I had or could find around me.
As an adult, I moved to the Greenville, South Carolina area for some art school and found my best-friend and soulmate, my husband Paul, who is also an amazing electrician and handyman. Turns out, with him around, I constantly find myself surrounded by left over wood, metal, wire of all sorts...
I never imagined I could work with metal -- something so STRONG and full of STRENGTH -- it inspired me!
It made me want to challenge its properties; to see what I could make it do.
And the result?... See for yourself by checking out my store or following on social media.
It's an on-going learning experience, but I love getting to harness my creative side while trying new things and pushing the limit.
I am drawn to industrial style (some would call it Steampunk). I create using recycled copper, brass, aluminum, and sometimes incorporate vintage elements. I take the broken and discarded and make something unique, new, and beautiful. No two pieces are the same. You can check us out at events around Greenville and the Upstate!
Always encouraging my artistic skills, my family has inspired me to reach for the stars and do what I love...
and I do LOVE what I do!
Thank you all for supporting my need to create!
