Jeff is a self taught artist that started exploring the arts in his own unique way at an early age. In school he was kicked out of traditional art classes for creating what spoke to him, not necessarily the actual assignment. Instead of discouraging him, it has spurred his creativity and let him explore art independently without restraint and guidance- the result is a unique perspective of the arts without boundaries. He enjoys trying different mediums and incorporating different themes-political, social and ecological into his creations. His favorite materials to work with are found objects...or simply put 'JUNK', these are things that we as a society have deemed useless-Jeff sees this as the perfect challenge-create something of value where a value-less item one was. He creates his work in his home studio and does take commission requests.
A wide range of Unique Sculptures handmade from Re-Purposed materials. Guaranteed to last a lifetime and more.
Most of my work is commission, if you have an interest or idea-let me know what you have in mind and I can take it from there.
My metal art is made with truly re purposed material. The pieces used in my artwork have had a purpose before I found/bought it- farm implements, car parts, building salvage etc...the pieces are not new, raw metal like many artists choose to use. They have been USED and each piece of metal had a previous purpose before I made it into what it is now which makes it challenging to work with at times, but ultimately rewarding since its a true piece of junk art-not just a piece of artwork created from new materials (which are fantastic in their own right as well). In all of my work- there is a layering process of re-purposed junk metal pieces, so even the internal structure has had a life previous to the sculpture. It is a painstaking labor of love but I enjoy and take pride in making my art in this way.
Thank you for stopping by to see what has been 'tossed' and 'found' and recreated in a whole new light.
