Welcome to my blog. I am a young, self-taught artist from the Gulf Coast, who wants to provide pyrographic artwork that sends a clear strong message. Please take time to look through my pages and posts. I appreciate comments, love making new friends, and covet faithful followers. Shout hello if you know me, or are just passing through.

As you can see in the above pictures I am burning a pine wood box. The lid is covered by a beautiful Schooner or Clipper ship...although I think Clipper ships often have four to five masts. Anyhow, I have also burned an anchor on the side and not pictured an ornate Compass Rose on the other.
While toiling after that one piece of wood under the boulder I unearthed another interesting piece of wood from the creek bed. While most woods will rot in water, hardwoods are often preserved. But these two pieces I dug up were roots...lumpy bumpy, roots. And I loved them. So I packed them back and cleaned them off and hope to decorate them by setting semi-precious stones in them, wrapping copper around some of their ends, and accenting their cracks and bumps with gold. It should make a wonderful contemporary mantle piece...because I can find no other purpose for this wood than to sit and look pretty!!
Thanks for coming and check back soon!
