My sculptures are a synthesis between my love of nature and my respect of the great artists who have come before. I have never lost my sense of wonder about the beauty and power of wild animals. I consider myself to be a student of both the process of creation and art history. The great art of the past speaks to me. I feel I am involved in a dialog spanning millennia and transcending language and culture. Whether it be individual artists or the art of antiquity; I am always amazed at the number of ways our species has come up with to convey their views of life and the nature of it. I find these voices resonate with my inner world and the universe with out. I seek out and embrace these influences, and consciously draw on them for my sculpting.
I spent about 25 years as an artisan in the art foundry world before seriously beginning to sculpt my own work around 2009. I am solitary in nature, with a life focused on art, nature, my dogs, and close friends.
