You may think I paint all of the time. Surprise! Sometimes I hammer, drill and slice after schlepping through tons of scrap metal at the junkyard!
It’s a dirty job. One that I love. I used to create copper art all the time, but one of my faux finishing clients bought every piece I had recently made for his man cave. Now, ages later, I’m rediscovering a passion, and, this is a great way to work out my new bionic shoulder and have a blast too.
Check out my newest junk art series, “Recycle The City” in my Etsy shop today!
Custom sizes and designs are available – think man or lady caves, bars, restaurants, art studios. You get the idea!
Sometimes a girl’s just gotta have fun! Or even a girl’s guy.

Effortless artsy, rusty, crusty effects are all the rage right now, thanks to Modern Masters and their fabulous Metal Effects line. They’ve also recently introduced Metal Effects Kits in Rust, Green and Blue Patinas, available online at TheHomeDepot.com. If you love crusty stuff, like old cars, metal accessories, and even artwork, we are kindred spirits. For years I have been scavenging in the local junkyard for years to grab gorgeous scraps of real copper and rust, made by nature, to incorporate into custom metal artwork for clients.
