Bred for the Plowland
I constantly remind myself of the words of the one and only Bob Kuhn: "Take a look at what everyone around you is doing - then do something else." I find inspiration from those who came before me, and therefore my heroes are deceased. Artists throughout history, including figurative sculptors of Greek antiquity, renaissance and art deco have influenced me. I have always been, and remain inspired by the subjects of my sculpture. Among the many artists I admire are: Antoine Bayre, Adolph Weinman, Katherine Lane Weems, Donald De Lue, and Anna Hyatt Huntington.
