My sculptures represent the human figure in motion and in solitude. It has been said that my sculptures capture “the essence of a moment”.

My art work include the sculptures “Elvis at 13” and (the 2 sculpture monument) “Elvis Becoming” at the Elvis Presley Birthplace, in Tupelo, MS. (Elvis shown at 3 different ages). In 1982 I was commissioned to sculpt the first Vietnam Veterans memorial in the United States, located at Montross, VA.

After early studies in Europe, I attended the Art Students League in New York, the Scottsdale Art School in Arizona and refined my technique during a sabbatical in Italy working with sculptors there. Many portrait sculptures were commissioned pieces or created at classes and workshops I taught and as a sculptor in residence.

I’m now in the process of creating a series (of Leah). Most poses might look familiar as they are taken from my earlier larger sculptures. Most of my work is shown at:
