I was born and raised in Southern California.  I worked on art as a child and throughout high school and college I took many classes.  In college I was interested in art history and sculpture. I graduated with a Master's degree in Sculpture from Long Beach State University in 1974. 

After college, I continued working on sculpture and paintings in my studio.  I worked with many materials during  this time period including steel, ceramic, concrete, and others.  The extra jobs that I had at this time contributed to my experiences.  For example, I worked construction and learned how to weld, build, and other skills.

I've been working with large scale heads as a basis for expression in many of my works since the 1980s.  I also experimented with scale and displays in the landscape.

Since I've lived in New Mexico for the last twenty years, the brilliant light and rugged landscape has affected my work.   I believe art has the ability to change people's lives.
