I got into this art form when my Brother did not know what to do with his machine shop drops (leftovers). My Father taught me how to weld. I make yard art, wall art, furniture, jewelry, and sculptures. I enjoy doing this art because I get to bring my imagination to life. My Father also has a number of old tin ceiling tiles from downtown Albuquerque . I have been painting them with oil paints. They are then sealed, mounted on Masonite and ready to hang. I also took a tin ceiling tile and cut out some ear rings, necklace's, wreaths, and Christmas ornaments.
