I started out as a painter and exhibited my work in the Laguna Beach Festival of Arts. I spent many years in commercial art and part of that time was spent paintings backgrounds for animation working for Hanna Barbera, Filmation and several smaller studios. I also enjoyed making pottery and started creating sculptures on them, this was when I discovered my great passion for sculpting. My first job sculpting was for Silvestri Studio’s where I sculpted life size mannequins. Later I joined the sculpting teams at Mattel and Hasbro, designing and sculpting dolls and toys. I did freelance sculpting for the Danbury Mint, Ashton Drake Galleries and more recently Dreamworks.
I focus most of my sculpting on the human anatomy and have received numerous awards, First Prize, Best of Show and the Director’s Award in the California Art Club’s Gold Medal Exhibition where I am a sculptor member.
