For many years I was taught to work with my hands and tools by my Dad. He taught industrial arts. I created my first sculpture work was when I sawed off the end of a end table with a hand saw my grandfather bought me at age 5. This composition was not met with rave reviews from my parents.
The next major design/build challenge was building a soap box derby and winning the DeKalb, Illinois race in 1967. I won a savings bond and a trip to the national race in Akron, Ohio. Unfortunately I lost that race. I next worked as a carpenter during college building all sorts of structures.
Building and designing things has continued throughout my life, as I have designed and built several homes and our primary home/ studio on the lake. I also built much of the cabinetry and furniture. At one point I was seriously contemplating Architecture School rather than continuing a pre med Biochemistry degree.
Next I applied these skills to practice as an orthopedic spine surgeon for many years.
Then life happens, and I was forced to explore a new horizon and Art become my salvation. Perhaps this was a seed that was ready to blossom. It was a natural fit to combine my skills in woodworking, metalworking and design into sculpture.
This is a sampling of my many sculpture works.
I can develop a similar work if what you fancy is sold or not available. Drop me a note and I will get you pricing and a production time. Usually 4 to 6 weeks depending on the season.
Many of the pieces are on display at my Houston Gallery Mixed Emotions fine Art in Houston.
