After 30 years a freelance illustrator of childrens' books, I have become absolutely fascinated with sculpture. First came animals. Then three years ago I was drawn to the work you will see here.
More than any other art, these pieces develop from a place inside me that I have searched for my entire life.
I am very pleased to share them with you.
This 6' tall sculpture titled "Tall Trees" represents my interest in old saws and many other antique tools that were used to build our civilization.
Today we take technology so for granted. Our lack of real hands on skills are becoming more apparent in so many human creative endeavors.
I so admire the dedication, determination and the physical stamina it took to create things just 100 years ago. As in sawing down this tree.
Below is a slide show of recent work. Hope you enjoy.
