ABOUT THE ARTIST
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Classes with artists in California influenced me to begin drawing using pencil, pen and ink. Upon moving to Lake Tahoe, I studied watercolor and combined watercolor with my pen and ink drawings. Later I explored the three dimensional art of sculpting at UCLA and took bronzing classes at Lake Tahoe Community College . It was at LTCC that I learned the entire bronzing process. Moving to Goodyear, AZ I had the opportunity to study under Cowboy Artists of America, John Coleman and Orland Joe Sr. at the Scottsdale Art School. My latest endeavor has been carving stone and combining it with bronze. This combining of stone and bronze has been the hardest, most difficult art work I've done. Working with 50, 100, 600 pound stones, that are almost as hard as a diamond presents problems that go far beyond just sculpting clay. Sometimes I have the stone in my studio for a month just looking at it, turning it, handling it, looking at it from different angles, trying to see what is in the stone. How does the color in the stone run? What is the shape the stone will want to take? Will the motion of the piece be in the stone or will the motion be in the bronze or in both? Will it be American Indian, African, or something else? My goal is that the final sculpture will invite you in. I want it to touch you emotionally and beautify your life.
I am currently a member of the Sonoan Art League
