Volcanic Stainless Steel Paintings

My art.
A clear paste, painted with brushes, onto sheetmetal and torched to over 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit to produce color and line. An extremely difficult and yet magical process. It’s like condensation on your mirror and drawing images with your finger on the mirror. I can barely see what I’ve painted and then I burn the metal with fire until I see. I receive an education and a gift with every piece of my art.
