Figurative sculpture has been a passion of mine all my life. As a chemist, sculpting was my hobby. Finally the time came that I could dedicate most of my time to sculpting. As a classical figurative sculptor, I thrive to understand and express the dynamics, beauty and emotions of the realistic human form. I hope through my creations, at least in a small way, to bring joy into other people's lives. I worked directly from models with different groups in the Bay Area. I have studied at the Adult School in Orinda with Anne Fisher, at Studio One in Oakland with Zahava Sherez and Lourdam Kimbrell, and with Carol Tarzier and Tebby George at Fort Mason in San Francisco. My studies continued with hands-on classes in Anatomy for artists in Berkeley taught by Steven Perkins and Eugene Daub.
Lately I am sculpting in a small group in San Rafael with Tebby George and others. I used to work with resin and water based clay, but now only work with water based clay, and my finished sculptures are painted or Raku fired.
