Welcome !

A personal note to visitors...

Welcome to my website, a virtual gallery of some of my limited edition bronzes and outdoor sculpture projects... I hope you enjoy your visit to my online galleries and information center...Come back often as things are always changing...

If you have any questions regarding my sculpture, pricing, the lost wax casting process, sculpting in general, or about sculpting clays, drop me an e-mail. I will do my best to answer your questions.

Since 1982 most of my work has been cast at one foundry, Deep in the Heart Art Foundry in Bastrop, Texas. A quality foundry with quality people. On some of my earlier monumental sculpture projects I have also enjoyed working with the Zimmermans at Lands End Sculpture Center in Paonia, Colorado, with great results. Mike Carpino in Houston cast a couple of projects for me, also with great results.

I am always interested in new and challenging sculpture projects, 'life-size' or 'larger than life', sculpted portraits, bas reliefs, figurative or wildlife sculpture. Give me a call and let's discuss your next project.

We can help with the early planning stages of your sculpture project, taking it all the way through the initial design, working with designers, architects, and landscape architects, to finishing, pedestal construction, delivery and installation, all in a timely manner. All my bronzes are guaranteed for one year against any defects in materials and/or workmanship. Project references are gladly available upon request.

Thanks for your interest!

May God Bless!

Afoot, Alone and Thirty Below

Life is full of storms. They may be in the form of a great challenge or an unexpected hardship, many times they can be almost more than we can bear, even life-threatening. This is when the human spirit calls on us to fight back, push on, and you will overcome. Never, never, never give up, no matter how great the odds against you, press on, persevere, you can win, you can weather the storm.
