Tell us about your education.
My education in welding started in 1989 when I took my first welding class through the Skills Exchange at the Danforth Technical School in Toronto, ON. Upon moving to Kincardine, ON the following year I continued my welding interests by attending night classes offered through the Blue Water District Board of Education.
Since then I have opened up my own studio in Owen Sound, ON. West Rock Art Metal is a magnet for my scrap metal collection. I scour surrounding landfill sites, farm implement supply dealers, free ads on Kijiji and word of mouth to fulfil my need for raw materials. All of my pieces are created with the reclaimed metals I find while some are accented by one of a kind pieces of stained glass or recycled fused glass created by Virginia Smith.
I like to keep the integrity of the original metal so people can recognize the components but see the transformation of pieces of metal into whimsical characters/animals with individual personalities. Many elements move; adding a feeling of life . My sons accompany me and we dig through the collection of rusted tools and parts until an idea springs to mind and pieces are put together using various tools such as Oxy Acetylene, Mig, Tig & Arc welders as well as a plasma cutter.

Good day,

I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and demand it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on (krmorab78901@gmail.com) for the full details.

Have a nice day.
Mrs.Kayi
