I found out that I had this artistic streak when I began teaching fabrication and welding apprentices in 2004. I was delivering the topic of “Geometric Construction” which is the cornerstone for metal fabricators to use when marking out patterns and shapes on metal.
I realised that by combining straight lines, parallel lines, arcs, tangents & radius tangents and bringing all these techniques together you can pretty much create any shape and pattern that you desire.
I was excited and enjoying my new career as a lecturer within the fabrication & Welding trade and at the same time was equally excited to discover that I had an eye for detail when it comes to creating a new approach to Metal Art & Design which I labelled “Freestyle Metal Art (FMA)”.
