  • whimsical steel creatures inspired by life on the mississippi gulf coast
  • modern metal interpretations of primitive art
  • commission pieces
  • paintings and drawings
  • a vast portfolio of graphic design projects
  • specialty drinkware
  • original “objects d’adornment” for head, hands and heart
  • lesson specific arts and craft projects for kids (and the young at heart)

Above is the Top Sail attached to the Fore Mast. Note the nice curve and the rod placement…    It’s like an actual sail catching the breeze, n’est-ce pas? However, once I had this put together it added just enough weight that the base tended to “tip” and raise up as the mast began to […]
After a lot of recuts and returns to the drawing board progress is here. You might be asking, what about that other sail? I just wasn’t happy with it. There was a lot of unwieldiness and such. Trust me. It just wasn’t right. So, I started from the ground up so to speak (I’ll post […]
