A professional artist all my life, I've used artwork to express myself since I was a young child. First with crayons, then oils and now I express those inner feelings in sculpting. I still love to draw, but many of my "sketches" are now in clay. The feeling of molding a soaring hawk, the forms of a flower, or a magnificent mountain makes me feel closer to the creator. I want to share my joy of nature with everyone, especially those do not see natural beauty in their daily life. And for those who do experience the wonder of the natural world, I endeavor to capture the accurate details and spirit of awe. I have been creating bronze sculptures over 20 years. Unlike many sculptors, I make my own molds, waxes, metal chases and patinas. Because I don't farm these important parts of the process, I can maintain quality
