"My pieces capture a moment in time in order to bring others to a closer awareness and appreciation of the natural world. My greatest joy is taking time to study animals in their natural environment. "
Portrait of artist  | Member of Artists for Conservation

One of the wonderful privileges I enjoy as an artist is the ability to create my world. By sharing that world with others, I can bring to them an awareness of the joy and wonder I derive from the real world. Most of my sculptures exhibit a sense of whimsey. Some appear exaggerated with elongated limbs, lots of texture and unique patinas.

The animals that inhabit my world are creatures that have some significance for me. In most cases I have visited them in their natural habitats including areas of South Africa, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia. I love exploring our national parks, coast lands and zoos. All are wonderful sources of inspiration. Of course, I never overlook what's going on right in my own backyard.
