I started over 20 years ago on a path to discover my expression in art as it is related to my first love, wildlife, and I continue that journey every day.  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. I find 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 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, I reach out and experiment with new designs and gestures to create sculptures that are well orchestrated, balanced, emotionally interesting, stimulating, and lyrical
