"Much of my work involves the idea of transforming dreams into steel, whether in the form of an art car, mutant vehicle or some other fabrication. I love to enter zones of working when my materials, whether they be found objects or raw steel, begin to talk to and direct me. I attempt to load my work with energy, pouring calories into the pieces. I love to collaborate with others, and try to spend one-half of my work-time helping others with their projects. My own best work has benefited from the help and assistance of others. I believe in cooperation rather than competition. I like the finished pieces to be obviously hand-made and hand-crafted, not created by a corporation. At a time when fascism has descended upon the US, I like the idea of using art to fight back. I believe that the power of friendship has yet to be harnessed on the massive basis needed to save the world. I love to manifest dreamy ideas into reality and I hope this love is evident in my work."
