Sculpting is revitalizing and rebalancing for me and has made a vast change in how I experience life. I see and sense strength in spirit and want to capture that in my work to share with others. In broad strokes, with my focus on the historic American West, I envision what it might have been like right here in Oklahoma, home to several historic cattle trails, including the famous Chisholm Trail. I often find myself looking across the plains to see where the drovers might have made camp and bed down the herd for the night.
My fundamental inspiration springs from the people and places that surround me. My goal is to capture the layers of attitude, emotion and personality of the historic American Western lifestyle and translate that into a visual feast that captures the heart and soul of the West.
