I am a metal sculptor who spent more than 40 years caring for patients in my pursuit of medicine. I have now undergone a metamorphosis from caring to creating. Working in both mild and stainless steel, I am now creating metal sculptures, for placement indoors and outdoors.I begin the process with a mental vision of a shape, a form, or a structure.Then I put this initial concept to paper in the form of a drawing or a sketch, often done in perspective, followed by creating a small scale model as a guide for fabricating the final work. The final step in the process involves cutting the steel into appropriate sizes and shapes, welding them together, grinding down the welds and then painting or polishing, depending on the material used. Each piece takes many hundreds of hours to go from the initial workings to the final product. The geometry, the symmetry, the asymmetry, the negative space, as well as the size of my sculptures create a dramatic and satisfying experience. Commissions accepted. Prices on request.

PERCEPTION  Each person looking at a piece of art has a different perception of what they are seeing. I see in this 13 foot stainless steel piece a sense of muted energy and power. Its rings are encompassing, and yet the arcs reach out into space. The balance of negative and positive space is magnified and exaggerated by the cantilever of the main start. In the sun it radiates some of its internal energy.
