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.

KATSINA  (26" x 20" x 5")  Stainless Steel

A Katsina is a Pueblo Indian spiritual being, which personifies all aspects of life. It is often represented as a doll or a dancing figure.  The curved, arching steel, the semicircular disc and the half and quarter moon niches in the upright shaft are features seen in Katsinas and artistic representations of them.
