Hi and welcome to my online portfolio. I have been sculpting for the past six or so years. Prior to that I was a painter and illustrator, but moreso as a hobbyist. I did not seriously pursue art as a part-time career until I met and was inspired by my mentor, Tebby George and by my fellow sculptors. I call myself a figurative artist because my preferred subject matter is the human figure.

A large majority of my sculptures are glazed using the raku glazing technique, a technique that is mainly associated with pottery which produces beautiful cracks or luster metallic finishes. I love the antiquated look raku gives my sculptures, as if they were dug up from an archaeological dig which I suppose would be my “schtick” as a sculptor. Growing up I had always been enamored with the sculpted dieties of many ancient cultures, particularly the Greeks and the many incarnations of the Virgin Mary. And, it is interesting to discover, looking at my body of work, how much that heavily influenced my “style”.

I am constantly in pursuit of increasing my observation skills as a sculptor. I am always amazed, even with the amount of knowledge gained from books and human anatomy workshops that I am always problem-solving a piece. There are the standard muscles groups on humans, however depending on the size and shape of the model, they are obvious...and sometimes not. It is always a different experience, which actually is why I enjoy sculpting so much. Read Less
