Practically Art is the culmination of years of construction, home improvement
and crafts experience being utilized to create highly functional designs.
Most projects/ designs are presented to me as challenges to create a certain
end product. I wanted to reupholster some kitchen chairs so I borrowed a sewing
machine, bought some fabric and started sewing. After years of honing these skills
I began sewing dresses, gowns, making dolls and most recently machine quilts.
Being a plumbers assistant, uh I mean son; I spent many hours watching and learning
how things were put together. Today you will find many construction techniques
and materials in my work.
My greatest thrill is for someone to approach me with a concept and for me to
bring it to life. I very rarely just come up with an idea without having a use
or need for it first.
I love the outdoors and the earth. Creating gardens and decorating with my art
is a double pleasure! I'm thankful to my mom, Jackie for teaching how to live
outside the boundaries of expectations and to my father, for teaching how to use
my hands and brain.
