I was taught silversmithing in Tucson, AZ, in 1974, then soon started working in gold and taught myself the art of Lost Wax Casting – a technique of creating hand-crafted jewelry. My designs have been accepted and have won many awards in the most prestigious art shows throughout the United States.
I woke up one morning and said to myself, “I am going to make my own damn guitar and learn how to play slide!”
I went to my friend’s music store to see what parts he had. He handed me a spider bridge, cone, and cover. That’s all it took…Playing it is still a work in progress, but I did a pretty good job in making the first guitar.
As a metal worker and fabricator, I fell in love with the process. So, here we are… Mercury Lab Guitars. You can even see one in the National Guitar Museum's traveling show.
As children, we see worlds of wonder and adventure around every turn, but as we grow old, we often lose our way. Places of joy and refreshment become difficult to find. I do my best to help make a road back to these sacred places the soul longs for.
I utilize mostly inks, colored pencils, and paper in unconventional techniques & combinations to demonstrate that these "simple" and often overlooked materials can create magnificent works of art.
