BRONZE SCULPTURE / DRIFTWOOD FURNITURE
I bring a lifetime of experience in natural history and marine biology to my sculpture. Born in Bremerton, WA; raised on the Mojave Desert; I have a background in Marine Biology with degrees in Fisheries Management from Humboldt State University, and over 7 years of fisheries research before starting my career as a sculptor in 1979. I was initially attracted to a career in marine biology, because of the esthetics, the grace and beauty of marine wildlife. I have been sculpting marine and other wildlife and paleo wildlife full time for over 37 years now. I strive to sculpt my subjects in a way that combines scientific accuracy and detail with an elegant and graceful presentation. Since moving to Oregon in 2008, I have also been involved in building free form furniture out of the driftwood, so abundant here on the coast.
