Collin lives and works on 30 acres of forest and farmland in rural upstate New York. Ever since he was a child he has loved making things and metal has been his favorite medium. His sculpture reflects his training and expertise in the industrial techniques of welding and machining and the shapes, balance, and movement found in nature. Collin's jewelry pieces are hand crafted starting with sheet metal and wire. He incorporates recycled copper flashing to add warmth and contrast .
