Artist Statement

As an artist, he flourishes in his ability to find beauty and use in discarded objects. Utilitarian, antiques and plain old junk are all integrated into his hand-crafted, operative guitars. The mix of form, function and use of upcycled materials come together to create this one-of-a-kind exhibit. These guitars are meant to be handled and played so come by the Emerson to see and hear for yourself!
