Biographical Info

Growing up in rural Wisconsin amidst the dairy farms and the Northwoods my fascination with art and animals dates back to 3rd or 4th grade; I made my first bronze in 1964. My work ranges from miniature to monumental and I am involved in the entire process of bronze making including mold making, waxes, welding, metal chasing and patinas. I remember as a kid sneaking up on a small slough that had a hen and about a dozen ducklings.  I made a dash into the water thinking I am going to catch a baby duck but all the ducklings dove under the water.  I waited for them to surface, but they never did.

My most prestigious award was the “Prix de West” award from the National Cowboy Museum in 1985.
