VerticalArtisans.com was officialy introduced January 18th at the World of Concrete event in 2008.    I was a guest artist at the artistry event opening eyes and doors to the Vertical Artisans concept. This is a site designed to illustrate the methods, styles, and techniques of stone facing. I had been developing the site from 2006 - 2007.   I wanted to offer an incredible aid to fellow artisans who had a desire like I did for this craft.  Giving artists something that I did not have many years ago was in fact a great personel goal of mine.    Having access to the rare data that I so desperately searched for but could rarely find was the primary goal.  To this day I still record all my projects and innovations that are added to the site almost as soon as I complete them. I have no desire to stop adding value to my site.  Welcome and enjoy the art of Hand Carved Vertical Decorative Concrete.
