I am currently  a member of the Muddy Creek Artist Guild, a large group of artists residing in southern Anne Arundel County.  We have at least three art shows per year, held at various locations in the area.

I was fortunate to find a job working in the model shop at the Smithsonian in the Office of Exhibits Central as a model maker and sculptor, and have contributed to many dioramas and exhibits over the 30+ years I have worked there. Some of my most significant achievements as a sculptor are two of the four running horses still on display at the National Postal History Museum and, more recently, a life sized Newfoundland dog for the National Air and Space Museum. I have recently retired as the manager of the 3D Studio and I am looking forward to my next phase of life as an independent artist.

Hello and thank you for your interest in my work!

Here is a quick summary of my background.  I graduated in 1977 with a BFA from MICA, (Maryland Institute College of Art), in Baltimore Maryland having had mixed fine arts as my major. This afforded me the greatest spectrum of opportunities to learn various media and disciplines and frankly, I had a great time!  I took everything from Puppetry (making puppets) and weaving, to figurative sculpture, painting and working with ceramics. The primary areas of my focus were drawing, painting and figurative sculpture.
