Seeing the woman welding giant angel wings in the movie Cast Away with Tom Hanks spoke to my soul and I knew it was my life mission to weld art. It took me nine months to save for tuition and in 2007 I was able to enroll in an adult welding class. In 2008 I was hired at a custom fabrication shop in my home town. After three and a half years of workin there I was able to fix my credit and save enough to purchase a home, for the garage. Nine months after I purchased my home I saved enough to purchase a welder and the equipment I needed to open my studio. I quickly went to work designing and creating anything I could think of! After five years I left the fabricating job that I loved to work for myself full time September 1, 2014.

To date I have created sculptures for clients in ten different countries, have sculptures on display in two New York art galleries, and sell my art in three retail locations.

I live and work from my home in Erin, N.Y. where I am saving up for property so I can build a big girl fabrication shop!
