I began my career in illustration and fine art photography with the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute after attending Colorado State University and Minneapolis College of Art and Design. My art is known for its energy, movement and technical mastery with a powerful yet elegant quality, drawn from my classical approach to sculpture. I travel extensively to destinations such as Africa, Central and South America, the Galapagos Islands, and the Antarctic, and draw on these experiences in creating my art. My work, which is created in my Loveland studio, ranges in size from table-top to monumental. The editions and commissions grace many private collections, both nationally and internationally, and public art programs. I am an Elected Member of the National Sculpture Society (NSS), National Sculptors’ Guild Member, and a Signature Member of the Society of Animal Artists (SAA).
