about george

“I am a product of the Albuquerque, New Mexico public school system.  After a tour in South Vietnam I returned home to work in the semiconductor industry as a professional welder.  I obtained seven federal welding certified certificates in ferrous and non-ferrous metals and in plastics.  I brought that experience into the art world.” 


“Fabricating art in metal became my passion.  I then moved to foundry work; creating sculpture in clay or wax, then casting them in aluminum, cast iron or bronze.” 


“The New Mexico Veterans Memorial in Albuquerque exhibits my life-sized bronze honoring the Vietnam Veteran.”


George has numerous awards for his in two dimensional drawings and paintings.  He works with graphite pencil, charcoal, pastel, acrylic and oil.  He also paints on steel with fire.
