Mike Barnhouse is a native of Texas and learned how to bend wire from his neighbor, and fellow wire enthusiast, Bart Soutendijk.
Mike's main wire medium is 9 gauge steel wire painted black.
The finished pieces are flat when finished and hung as a wall mural.
Prior to bending wire, Mike enjoyed oil painting, which is the reason why Mike tends to make wire sculptures of scenes.
