I have striven throughout my life to create imaginative work that connects with the viewer while alluding to my personal mythology.
I use highly detailed imagery while examining the individual’s pursuit of the sublime. I use beauty and craftsmanship to make my work approachable. Then, I project a new experience onto traditional sculpture by adding contemporary imagery to create a new visual experience.
I need to communicate more than beauty. Viewers that choose to look deeper

Most sculptures cost about $2-$3 per square inch, as measured using the largest two of three dimensions (length, width, and depth). However, variances occur for sculptures that contain more detail, less detail, or use unusual media.
