I began sculpting wildlife in 1999. I chose that subject matter as I've always been fascinated by animals and the beauty that they possess. I live on Long Island in New York and always enjoyed the many bird species that migrate through our coastal areas. The Adirondacks of upstate New York with its abundant wildlife has also been an inspiration to me as we have a cabin up there for several decades now. I enjoy sharing the beauty and awe of these animals through my many bronzes I have created over these years. I hope that upon seeing my sculpture perhaps the viewer will be reminded of a time that they spent outdoors enjoying those special moments when they get to witness first hand the awesome beauty in nature.
