i have worked with art indirectly for a very long time. i am currently serving in the US Army and just got back from Iraq. I am transitioning out of the Army and would like to follow my art path now, no formal schooling everything has been self taught or from observing. i love to take metal and industrial items and infuse them into everyday items and clothes. i live in mixed media and play in sculpting to painting. i am also a mechanical engineer which i do have schooling for.
