Sculpture is about shape. For me, the composition starts with shape and the personality of the subject is simply part of me, the sculptor, showing through in my artwork. I enjoy seeing people recognize an aspect of themselves in the personality of my sculpture. Nature, in all its wonderful and diverse forms, is my inspiration. My artwork is not a replica; it is an impression of nature’s perfection. I do most of my own patinas and the finish is the final aspect of my composition.
