Light a fire, that can't be put out!

I began in 1970 when I worked under Dr Fairbanks, and in Neil Hadlocks foundry. Those two skill sets, have aided me throughout my life.

For 52 years I have worked from the west coast to the east coast aiding foundries and artist by working as an enlarger, and building maquette’s for competitions.

My early years I was sought gainful employment as a sculptural enlarger. 
I worked extremely hard by working in foundries.

I took on work as an artist aid, when artist were needing some help in enlarging sculptures. I was able to exploit my welding abilities in such endeavors.

From time to time, I have taken on young students. Some of them have gone on to receive local and national recognition. I know there is a young Michelangelo out there, but as a society we need to make bring back those same types of conditions.

I have so much work to do, and such little time to do it in. I need to get massive amounts of energy to complete my new works. I am as excited as a teenager, starting this new path that is before me.
