Artist Statement

My art is a combination of printmaking, bronze sculpture and oil painting. The subjects that most interest me are large animals in landscapes, mostly North American. I also do subjects including ancient ruins and artifacts of Indian art of the Americas. In my studio I am surrounded by life-size taxidermy mounts, which are my friends and subjects. The walls are covered with contemporary and iconic painters like Carl Rungus. Making and collecting art is a way of life for me.

What People Are Saying

If you’re anywhere near Jackson, I’d recommend that you drive 5 min out of town and visit this beautiful place. The sculptures are extraordinary and the building itself is just a unique place that looks like it grew out of the hillside.
