Thank you for your interest in my work as a sculptor.
I add new works to the Photo Gallery as they are completed. Please be sure to open each Photo Gallery for details and my commentary.
I'm excited by each new work as I continue to evolve as an artist.
My fourth Public Art commission, "Lady Justice" has just been installed in front of the Public Defenders Office in Gainesville FL.
My third Public Art commission, "Mother & Baby" has been installed in front of the new Mother Baby Center at Mercy Hospital in Coon Rapids, MN. I am very excited to have it on the same campus as my second commission "Hopes and Dreams", also located in Mercy Hospital's Hope Garden.
My first Public Art installation is in front of the Eden Prairie Community Center in Eden Prairie, MN. Below is a video of it's motion in a brisk wind. Go to the Photo Gallery to see more of "Soaring Bird: Peace through Service".
My long-term focus
Most of my works are intended to be large scale as they are often an expression of the interaction of form and space. This requires them to be of sufficient scale and in an environment that provides space, such as a corporate park, a city park, or large interior space such as a lobby. However, I also do smaller works appropriate for personal collections.
Currently, my works focus on three different categories of sculpture:
I am seeking commissions.
My approach to art
I create my art to lift and enlighten the spirit, to touch the heart, to awaken the intellect. I believe that art should be beautiful. It's proportion, balance, and aesthetics should draw the heart and spirit into it and leave with something more.
Too much of today's art is designed to shock and too often the vehicle used is ugliness, and dissidence. Too much of today's art lacks a soul and spirit. Art can be and should be more.
My intention is for my art to be more than beautiful. I want my art to be a unique in contribution to our collective understanding of humankind. I intend for my art to be provocative, that is, to provoke the mind, heart or spirit to experience something new or rekindle something forgotten.
