Sculpture garden


I love to study and observe nature and when I do a new subject I try to be true to the physical characteristics as well as the personality of the animal. See the  Wildlife page.

I love the romance of history and seek to show the drama and adventure from the past.               

See the History page.

These models in clay will become bronze.  There is a special price if the patron pays for the piece before it goes to the foundry. See Models in Clay. 

I have recently developed a sculpture garden next to my studio. If you are in the Custer area, give me a call and come visit.

Models in clay

 An example of how I love to make a subject come alive, "The Reluctant Pilgrim" depicts a Texas Cowboy attempting to rope a Longhorn and coax him up the Great Western Trail to Deadwood in the 1880's

I did my first bronze sculpture in 1977 and havebeen a professional since 1993. It is highly rewarding to finish a piece and even more so when someone like a child appreciates it.
