Objective

 

As an accomplished sculptor and artist, I enjoy the creative process. I feel the ability to sculpt is a gift. To me there is a responsibility to our creator to use, hone and share this gift. I am truly driven in taking the gift I have been so fortunate to receive to the highest level possible. I love anatomy the exacting truth of it. This realism depicting anyone or anything can then be immersed in the beauty of artist license to add wonder, grace, power and emotion. To make the piece art, not just accurate, that is when you know you have something timeless. I am very receptive to commissions and have enjoyed each and every one I have completed. It gives me great joy to bring the vision of another into existence, to fill the void with the perfect piece, to accept the challenge.
