"I believe that art can stimulate and add to the human experience whether it is a grand statement or an intriguing subtle surprise.  Drawing has been a passion of mine from my earliest years.   Of all the media I have explored, steel has offered an exciting range of shapes and surfaces to draw on. 

Often I use reclaimed and recycled material from scrap yards. The chalkiness of the welder’s soapstone pencil I use lends itself to the fluid drawings that are added, subtracted, broken, and blended on the steel forms.

In an effort to capture the organic free associative tapestry of drawings I began hand cutting them out of the rugged yet yielding steel with an oxy-acetylene torch.  Recently I started using a plasma cutter which allows me to make sculpture out of stainless steel, bronze and aluminum. 

The process of rendering the drawings became a natural springboard into sculpture, with all its powerful sensibilities of dimensional touch, scale, light and shadow." --Brandon Zebold
