I see my work as a reflection of the beauty in the organic process found in nature and all things living. My passion in fine art was to focus and capture the permanence of expressions in those materials that would withstand the test of time. The beauty of Arizona’s hot deserts, the Grand Canyon, the snow-topped San Francisco Peaks drew me to Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. The academic process of discovery, Commercial art, architecture, interior design, painting, graphics, calligraphy and ceramics, led me to sculpture and the complete utter joy of 3-dimensional design. Bronze and silver casting gave me that medium for design and permanence. More than 40 years later that joy of designing and fabricating individual custom one-of-a-kind pieces is still very alive and thriving in me.
