Justin grew up on a cattle ranch in the arid outskirts of Las Cruces, New Mexico, where he learned to fix and build just about everything short of the Space Shuttle. A graduate of New Mexico State University (Geology. Go rocks!), he currently earns a real living in the field of industrial hygiene, all the while dreaming of the day when his art will pay all the bills.

His primary media are steel, copper, brass and other metals. Though his work sometimes veers in the direction of “serious,” he prides himself creating art that makes people smile.
