BIO

Sculpture became a consuming passion for me relatively late in life. In classes and workshops, I learned much from Eugene Daub and Norma Penchansky-Glasser. I am also grateful for the critiques and encouragement I received from Daniel Altshuler, Marshall M. Fredericks, Walker Hancock, Enrique Moreiro and Robert A. Weinman, as well as the encouragement I've received from family, friends and passing acquaintances. I believe that love sees wondrously and hope that my medals, portraits and figures reflect the ineffable beauty of the human face, form and spirit. I agree with Rabindranath Tagore, the Bengali poet, who wrote "When I go from hence let this be my parting word, that what I have seen is unsurpassable." For me sculpture is a way of giving thanks.
