I have been an artist since I was 14 years old making art from wood and found objects. At 19 I built a small cabine cruiser and lived on it in Marina Del Rey for 6 years. My newest work incorperates lots of wood working of all sorts.
My most ambitious piece is, The Spruce Goose ll. It is an abstract rendition of Howard Hughes plane that actually starts up and sounds like a real airplane. It can be seen on Utube (http://www.relaypoint.net/~arctv/close/howardvid.html) I also love to use wood working tools in my work.
Just thought it would be challenge to make this piece.
This is a working airplane art work. Made from 13 ply hardwood plywood and sounds like a real airplane. Can see it in operation on Youtube.
This is an artwork called Spring Chicken. Ruber chicken suspended by wires and springs with guatar tuning pegs and mahogany.
This is the second one of these I made the first one sold within a month. Made of nails and tacks. The colored tacks had to be hand painted. Nailed…
Just had to make another one of these. Only took 50 hours to do. Lost count of the number of nails and tacks. Mahogony frame and vintage hammers. 23"x23"x3
This is a sculpture that I just had to do. Every artist puts on the wall what he thinks is improtant, so I thought I would just put this up…
Thought it would be fun to use cement trowls as if they were smothing and shaping wood. Redwood and trowels.
This is an art work about people who can't give up on someone who left them. It says, "Your undying love is killing the ducks."
Lucy has been the longest running TV show so I thought why not have her tighed to a chair having to watch her own show?Oak hardwood floor Pine two by…
Since according to the Myan Calander the end of the world is coming I thought I would do a sculpture about that event before it happens.
