Artist / Wood Sculptor
– Studio: Philadelphia, PA. From 1976 through 2005 I sculpted episodically, rarely exhibited publicly and gave most completed works away as gifts often without photographing them. I sold some pieces through a small network of patrons and benefactors. In 2005 I began devoting a larger portion of time towards developing my career as a professional artist and sculptor. As a result, I have been able to create a significant body of new work, making it possible to exhibit and sell my sculpture to the public.
