About The Artist

As a life long artist my interest first began with drawing, poetry and song writing. I formed local punk rock band as the front man during my high school years in Louisville, KY. We performed as an opening act at numerous venues thoughout the city. I moved to Saint Louis and later started blowing glass in 1999 which began the next chapter of my life. I spent the next 20 years perfecting my skill, building my own glass equipment/studio, working with my wife, Erin and doing art shows. In 2019 we decided to have a child and our little girl was born in 2020. She is exactly what we needed; the perfect addition to our family. During Erin's pregnency, we decided to take a break from glass blowing. This is when I decided to venture into this new style of art that had been on my mind for years. The plan was to start blowing glass again as soon as pssible, but the new work has taken over and this is where my interest of now.
