About the Artist

I won the coloring contest in kindergarten. In 1980 I earned an MFA in Sculpture from the University of Texas at Austin. Throughout the 80’s I worked at a bronze casting foundry. A perk of the job was that I could cast my own work. In 1990 I became a founding partner in Katsu, designing and manufacturing nightlights and wall lamps from sheet aluminum and plexiglass. We sold our wares wholesale to galleries, and retail to the public at juried craft shows around the country. I retired in 2006 and moved my studio into my renovated garage. Still making stuff.

Artist Statement

I make mixed media sculpture, toys, and functional items like clocks, lights, and architectural ornaments. I’ve always made small sculpture - tabletop size or even as small as knickknacks/miniatures. I start with fabricated parts using sheet aluminum, wood, or cast bronze, then introduce a variety of other materials and sometimes found objects. My work often draws on animal or human forms. It’s always playful and off key.
