A career welder
that also enjoys drawing, the eventual union of vocation and avocation
was probably inevitable.
addition to thirty-some years of welding experience, Roger has attended
art courses at Delta College and metal fabrication classes at the Center
for the Arts in Midland, Michigan. Roger's work has been displayed and
sold at Northwood Gallery in Midland, Michigan, The Saginaw Art Museum
in Saginaw, Michigan, The Midland Center for the Arts in Midland, Michigan,
Studio 23 and Bay Coffee and Tea in Bay City, Michigan, and LaFontsee/Underground
Studios in Grand Rapids, Michigan, as well as numerous area shows and
has featured several pieces of his work for their newspaper advertisements.
His work has been featured in the art section of the Saginaw News. He
is a member of the Midland Artist Guild, Arts Midland and The Studio
23/Art Center organization.
Roger is attempting
to use action and color to inspire whimsical, humorous, and positive
feelings for the viewer. In other words, bring a smile to your face!
Incidentally, most of his pieces are 100% recycled.
