I began studying sculpture in 1998 with David Ogle while working as a software engineer. In 2001 I left high tech and dedicated all of my time to creating bronze sculptures and to learning the art of welding, ceramic wheel throwing and hand-building, and monotype printmaking. All of my work is original and unique because I do not create molds for limited editions.
Bodies of work
I have worked in a variety of media. I started in bronze where I created a series of figures. Later, while learning to weld, I created a series of abstract steel 3-d sculptures and wall pieces. At this time I also created the series of prints. Both the prints and steel work influenced the next bronze series of wall pieces where the prints inspired the organic quality and the steel the rigid structure. The most recent series was born after I had created well over a dozen porcelain eggs. I integrated the eggs into the bronze to tell a story of personal evolution.
