I am an artist, sculptor, jeweler, poet who has been sculpting since 1994. My inspiration is derived from the figure. I model in clay from life and normally cast my pieces in bronze although my more recent work has been cast in cement. Prior to my work in sculpture I taught French in St. Louis, Missouri where I was raised. I was born in Paris, France and hold dual United States and French Citizenship. I was a professional editorial photographer and served on the masthead for People Magazine for about two decades. I have lectured at the National Academy where I received my three year certificate in sculpture. I have been an associate,ember of the National Sculpture Society since 1999 when I had my first piece exhibited in the NSS Annual Exhibition. I served as Sculpture Director of the Audubon Artists from 2010 through 2012. My other memberships include the American Society of Magazine Photographers and the Goldsmith's of America.
