Presently I split time between a large studio in the Delaware Contemporary and a well-equipped studio in my home. Both are in Wilmington Delaware. Nine out of ten days I am working on some form of sculpture be it commercial, private or speculative.

My career developed after spending 7 years apprenticing for the American sculptor Charles Parks. From him I learned the techniques that have served sculptors for centuries and still form the basis for contemporary sculpture.

Until that period I was involved in graphic art, and illustration. These years were important in forming an appreciation for 2 dimensional art and a preference for 3 dimensional art. There are many occasions where both disciplines merge.

My formal art training and degree were provided by the dedicated and patient instructors of the Atlanta College of Art. They were swallowed whole by Savannah College of Art and Design in 2005.

I've been influenced by no less than 50 especially talented people since I first came to think of myself as an artist. I am trying my hardest to insure safe passage of all their collective wit and wisdom. Where it ultimately ends up has yet to be determined.
