“Designing and sculpting original works of art in a variety of Stone, Metal , Wood or glass to complement and accent any work or living area”

A military pilot, industrial engineer and professional manager by training and previous career, I have always been intrigued by the methods used to create the unique shapes and textures devised by the masters. While traveling extensively, whenever possible, I visit the museums and exhibits of these and other renowned artists to study their works.

I began sculpting in earnest in November 2001 with relatively simple shapes and stones. However, while understudying artists in West Palm Beach, Colorado, Pensacola and Prague (Czech Republic) I developed my own style, which has a “flowing appearance” to represent movement or strength in each art piece.

A military pilot, industrial engineer and professional manager by training and previous career, I have always been intrigued by the methods used to create the unique shapes and textures devised by the masters. While traveling extensively, whenever possible, I visit the museums and exhibits of these and other renowned artists to study their works.

I began sculpting in earnest in November 2001 with relatively simple shapes and stones. However, while understudying artists in West Palm Beach, Colorado, Pensacola and Prague (Czech Republic) I developed my own style, which has a “flowing appearance” to represent movement or strength in each art piece. I left the corporate world in 2002 to devote more time to other things, including sculpting. The majority of my stone sculptures are now of Marble, Calcite, and Alabaster. Outdoor pieces tend to be well over 100 pounds while indoor accent pieces are generally 10-100 pounds.

Several years ago I studied the lost wax bronze making process in Florida and in Prague. I was amazed at the complex time honored process that yields these wonderful and lasting works of art. My Bronze sculptures are designed for indoor placement and weigh between 12 and 30 pounds.

To continue my quest for other artistic media: I have designed and completed several different kinetic wall art pieces – some as large as 6 feet by 5 feet. Additionally, I have begin to create outdoor kinetic pieces of Stainless Steel and other durable products and driven by the wind for a random flowing motion.

Along the way I have also designed numerous fused and stained glass pieces for specific clients and have recently expanded the designs with those mediums
