My inspiration for my work is my love of animals. My techniques and methods are a combination of not only my education, but my years of experience renovating and building.

My art school education comes from several years at Parson's School of Design,  in NYC.  I moved back to rural Western NY State, and bought an abandoned cabin in the woods. I learned how to do all aspects of renovation.  I find that I incorporate this knowledge into my creations, from using certain materials used in the building trades, or knowing how to properly create an armature.  I have two dogs, two cats, a house rabbit,  and a flock of unruly chickens. You'll notice their influence in my art.  The main component of my sculptures is a recycled newspaper clay, that I developed the recipe for.  I also combine polymer clay, found objects, and other mixed media for my whimsical creations.  Have a look at my photo gallery.   Please contact me for pricing and payment options on my artwork. Also be sure to look at my upcoming show schedule.
