My intent with these works is to express a certain gesture or characteristic that I have experienced or envisioned. These works are a celebration of nature's resilience to human stresses and are my interpetation of the essence of wildness.

The main source for my inspiration is a secluded cabin off the grid, with a mile and a half long access easement in the Finger Lake region of New York State. This where I immerse myself.

I have been sculpting and painting for thirty years, have an MFA in sculpture from the University of Buffalo, and have taught art at the university and secondary levels.

I do commissions for special requests, and have other items that are not on Etsy. To see the full range of my work, visit
