"I feel that a beautiful garden gate or door, like any piece of art, is a passageway to another place and perhaps a different time - one that gives joy not only to the owner, but to all who pass through.

Years of commercial welding and a lifetime of building pasture gates provided me with techniques to make artistic expression in welded steel possible, and even natural.  I enjoy building entranceways that are architecturally significant as well as artistic. And as an artist, I am proud to have my gates and doorways as a part of homes, our country, and our times - guaranteed for life."
