Colorado native, Dave began drawing and sculpting at a very young age. In high school he started working in sculpture studios around Loveland, CO. During this time he was immersed in all aspects of sculpture and the lost wax process. His first studio job was at Dan Ostermiller's studio where he worked on many monuments. He then landed a job at Kent Ullberg's studio. In this time working with Kent his style and knowledge of sculpture really took hold. Now, Dave's sculptures are featured in both public and private collections throughout the USA and abroad and his work is on display in many galleries and museums. His sculptures have even been recognized by movie directors Guillermo Del Toro & Clive Barker. Dave is an elected Sculptor Member of the National Sculpture Society (NSS) and an associate member of the Society of Animal Artist (SAA). He is inspired by nature and architecture and has a unique style by blending the two together; applying nature to modern architecture.
