A self-taught and ardent metal sculptor, I use an oxyacetylene welding torch to fuse recycled metals and other discarded materials into bold objects of strength and beauty.
These pieces spring from an intimate and personal exposure to Syrian, African and American cultures. These cross-cultural influences inspire a sense of pride and gratitude and give face, form and meaning to my work.
Mine is an art of transformation, of forging the exceptional out of the commonplace. What society discards, I delight in giving new life.
