Sculpture in Stone and Bronze

My work is inspired by natural forms – human, plant and animal. I enjoy designing site-specific commissions in stone and bronze for corporations, private residential settings and public institutions. In between commissioned work I produce pieces that I often have on hand for sale in stone and bronze. I also design and create gold jewelry, often using subjects related to some of my larger sculptures. I am constantly trying to find ways to use my work to raise awareness about the kinship and interconnectedness of all living things and the importance of environmental conservation.

I began my study and practice of sculpture while a student at Phillips Exeter Academy in the late ’60’s. I went on to Oberlin College and majored in a combination of studio art and art history. After graduating from Oberlin in 1973, I taught sculpture and art at all levels for many years until finally focusing my attention completely on my work.
