ABOUT THE SCULPTOR

My artistic career can best be seen in three parts: early years through college as a driven artistic learning experience; professional career as a practicing attorney as grabbing hours and courses on sculpture where I could; after law as a consuming quest for technique and application. That’s now been twelve years. At first I was drawn to different subjects and different mediums. My focus has narrowed to specialize in reliefs, low and high.
