Studio view June 2017. The work in the foreground is from sophomore year Kenyon College 1982. This really is the piece that started it all for me. I was encouraged by my professor Martin Garhardt to enter it in an all campus juried show. Not only was it accepted into the show but also won the sculpture prize and $25! Anyway, I was completely shocked, surprised, and of course excited by this support. Later in the year I decided to major in studio art and that was that.

The work in the rear is a new, nearly finished piece as I concentrate on making some smaller stuff.

This is a new piece I'm nearly finished with. In this work I added a concave curve, albeit a small, gentle one. In other news, I am very pleased to say that I have been offered a solo show at the University of Maine Museum of Art in May 2018. Very much looking forward to it.

My latest, still to be finished, probably will do a simple clear coat which will darker and warm the piece. This is my first sculpture to use more than one type of wood in a single piece. By introducing the walnut to the oak which I normally use, I now have some geometry or additional shapes within the overall form. I'm liking this new thread in addition to my recent concentration on constructing wall works.
