Antique Art

I am drawn to certain thing simply because I like the object. A singular piece may have no function, but there is something about it that I find appealing.

So with that, I could then say that I believe old discarded objects each harbor a spirit--like the violin that graced the hands of Stradivari. What about something as common as the old mud-crusted fishing creel tossed up in the attic? It’ s filled with fish-scented tales of those silent crisp mornings near streams.

This line of my art is both serious and fun. The designs seem to evolve from either a hobby or desire to a sweet memory of something past.

I have custom designed everything from cowboy themes (complete with boots, lariat, saddle and chaps) to a memorial holding the helmet, coat, rubber boots and hose of a fireman. I have worked with saxophones, euphoniums, cellos and trombones. I have designed with objects of antiquity--48-star flags, muskets, wooden shaft golf clubs and old Sunday bags, Lionel trains and Scottish themes. Each design evokes the aged spirit of the object incorporated.
