I started over 26 years ago on a path to discover my expression in art as it is related to my first love, wildlife, I continue that journey everyday. My work depicts wildlife through the simplest lines, shapes and designs that I can create without losing representation, gesture or attitude. I push the limits of anatomical accuracies in order to emphasize a stronger design, finding myself interpreting representational shapes and pushing them to boundaries of near abstraction.
I cast primarily in bronze, but feel my simplest and sometimes strongest designs are achieved when I am sculpting for high polish stainless steel and carving stone. My lines and shapes are kept to a minimum in order to draw in the viewer, causing them to become more involved in the interpretation of my work. I find this connection to be very inspiring.
I am constantly humbled by the awesome effects that are created in nature and the creatures that I observe there on a daily basis. I find an unlimited supply of ideas within the natural world. I continue to explore those inspirations through my art every day.
I hope to create the best possible sculpture that I can by building strong designs through shape, line, texture and color. Always pushing my artistic boundaries to achieve what has not been done before, reaching out and experimenting with new designs and gestures. Creating sculptures that are well orchestrated, balanced, emotionally interesting, stimulating and lyrical.

I sculpted Wise Guy to highlight the dramatic contrast between heavy texture and smooth surfaces using high polished stainless steel. I love how this metal gives my sculptural style a unique, fluid and contemporary feel.
