I have been interested in sculpture from earliest memory. I have a good understanding and appreciation of the wide range of modern art but visual imagery and modest scale dominates my sculptural inspiration. I found that wax can be manipulated, modeled, and translated directly into bronze to encompass a wonderful range of expression. The resulting bronze sculpture is especially satisfying to me. Most of my sculptures deal with the human image. Currently most of my inspiration centers on varying perspectives of human performance.
