I started creating silver and copper wire jewelry in 2006 due to
necessity. I wanted some things which were not available so I made
My first copper wire trees were to hold my copper and silver jewelry but
quickly evolved past that. I now create trees which are more art than
function. I create both realistic and fantasy trees in many shapes and
sizes. The smallest trees are made with about 8,000 inches of thin copper
wire and take about 6 hours to create. The largest trees are made with
about 18,000 inches of copper wire and take about 20 hours to create.
I also create copper wire figures which stand about 10 inches high.
They are hybrid tree/humanoid creatures which I pose to resemble
everyday people like fishermen, soldiers, and yes, even firemen,
all performing everyday tasks. They are neat and take less than an hour
I have always had an interest in photography. My style is not for
everyone. I do not take postcard photographs, instead, I take photographs
for myself and if others like them, that is a bonus. I jokingly tell people
I could be in a white row boat in a fog bank and find something worth
My trees have been sold in four different galleries and they have been
shipped as far away as Europe and Australia.
