ABOUT THE ARTIST:
“ I approach the art of sculpting like seeing through the lens of a camera. My desire is to create art that coaxes viewers to look deeper into life.”
To my good fortune, my art education began with a highly successful artist, Marian Snyder. When I first met her she was 88. Her approach to sculpting was traditional in a practical way and her work was representational and stunningly beautiful. I worked with her for 10 years. She lived to the amazing age of 104.
Along with my art school education I studied with several great artists, each one teaching me their unique approach. The mix was, for me, a most valuable education and afforded me the ability to become an eclectic sculptor. This explains why my art addresses a broad range of styles and motifs; an approach I value most in my work. It allows me the freedom to take my work in my own creative direction.
