Building relationships with collectors is one of the greatest rewards of being of artist.

I am fortunate to have formed connections with many organizations and collectors throughout my career. My sculptures can be found in private collections, homes, churches, hospitals, convents, and educational institutions. I find it rewarding to create art that connects with a variety of audiences while remaining true to my artistic vision.

My Artistic Style

Formal Simplicity,
Symbolic Complexity

Stylistically, my work follows the modern tradition with minimal detail and substantial volume. I'm drawn to sculpture that speaks through gesture, conveying multiple layers of meaning for the viewer to contemplate.
