Sculpture is my passion. It’s an extension of myself, reflecting my thoughts, my loves, hates joys and fears. Whether I’m involved in representational wildlife studies, realistic figure studies or abstractions, I put my heart and soul into it.
Each sculpture is an exciting journey. Starting with a vague concept, sketching it to achieve a visual form, building the armature, fleshing it out and having it cast in bronze are the elements which ultimately are to me the most rewarding and satisfying. In the process I use my talents, experience and my gut feelings to guide me until I’m satisfied within myself that the sculptural form I’ve created, moves in space and is in harmony with my vision.
In my career as a sculptor I’ve used the human figure extensively. In many studies I endeavor to capture the rapport between humans and the animal kingdom by combining the two to create sculptures that are uniquely my own abstract expressive approach. Creating and searching for the ultimate realization of my vision is the fulfillment of my life.
