I have been blacksmithing for over 16 years now. I completed the artist blacksmith program at Sir Sanford Flemming College in Haliburton ON and I apprenticed for over 4 years with journeyman blacksmith Robert Vaughan in the Ottawa Valley. I presently live in central Alberta with only a quick drive to the mountains and the prairies as my inspiration. I love traditional blacksmithing ,however in the last few years I have incorporated both welding and a propane forge along side my coal forge using traditional techniques to create my art work. I like to call it functional art.
