I was in a national band for 12 years and I owned a 10,000SF art gallery in Downtown Denver on art walk 2001-2007. For many years I was a model however I have backed away from that because people would most often recognize me for my looks rather then my talents, was rather discouraging and I felt often degrading. So now I focus 100% on my art!

I often go to the recycling plant up the road from me and pick out interesting shaped glass bottles and jars that I like. Also people donate me glass. I also but Metal or Glass pipes, bongs and flasks as well as frames and such to add my sculptures to, I do each piece by hand one of a kind. No molds, however i do use stamps for words and names for custom pieces. I sometimes add interesting metal or glass decorations for more detail. I buy many interesting things from the scrap yard to incorporate into my art. I also use glass beads, crystals, stones and much more. The painting process differs depending on the style of the piece. Some I airbrush to give a antique look and sponge for less expensive pieces. I do several variations of hand painting for better detail for more expensive pieces, however sometimes i actually use colored clay. Many of my brightly colored "neon" pieces are colored clay that glows in the dark and is black light reactive. Many of the pieces I then coat in a waterproof UV protective coating for extra protection and durability. All my pieces are functional. Thank you for taking the time to read all this! I do appreciate it. :D Have a great day!!!
