Artist's Comments

Creating sculpture is my passion. As a Professor of Art at Virginia Intermont College, I have made my living for the past thirty-six years teaching, making art, and helping others to discover, enjoy, and make art. My heroes are David Smith, Edward Kienholz, Claes Oldenburg (earlier work), and Lewis Grizzard. My preferences are rusty steel over bronze or marble, tee shirts and Jeans over suits, Tuesdays over Sundays, and, show me rather than tell me. I love dogs, nature, storms, humor, passion for a cause, and fire. I prefer contemporary art above art from the past, peace above war, and religion with room for human frailty.
