I spent thirty years sculpting for movies, television, animatronics, enlarging and duplicating fine art sculpture.
My love and ease with versatility comes from my early years working in Hollywood as a studio sculptor. Collaborating with production designers, art directors, engineers, directors, actors, and other sculptors helped me hone my skills while smoothing my ego. From tiny design maquettes for theme parks to huge prehistoric living rooms (The Flintstones), I sculpted just about everything you can imagine, and a bunch you can’t!
For the last fifteen years I've focused on figurative fine art, mostly in ceramic, but also in bronze and stone.
I now live in Vallejo, CA and am active in the creative arts community here. In 2015, I completed a large, six foot tall public cement sculpture of a mother and child which has been warmly embraced by the Vallejo community.
My approach to portraiture and figurative sculpture: “I am compelled to explore the depths of the human map, the persona, and the outer face and form which we present to the world. In so doing I hope to hold up a mirror which reflects the Soul and Spirit to the beholder.”
It is my belief that my natural talent and skills are a privilege, which are best used in service to humanity. I try to acknowledge this every time I fold into my hands a piece of clay, absurdly thinking I am bending it to my will.
I realize I do my best work when I allow the creativity to move through me and let my hands and the clay do the work. I create as an act of worship. I offer my Art as an instrument of Love and Healing.
