I came to art early and late. Early in my teens and throughout college I thought of a life as a professional artist. Then came another professional career and, finally, I am immersed as a professional sculptor. I relish everything about it: the independence, the industry, the friendship of the art community. People ask whether I regret making that choice. No, but I do wish I had gone "all in" creating sculpture earlier. I have created a decent portfolio and am now focusing on dynamic reliefs. Reliefs which morph into three dimensional figures. My "Elk Migration" was a good example of that. I am currently researching and blocking out a new commission, "Trail of Tears" depicting the Cherokee being displaced to Oklahoma. Not a happy piece. .
