I bring a lifetime of experience in Natural History and Marine Biology to my sculpture. Born in Bremerton WA, raised on the Mojave Desert, I have a background in Marine Biology with degrees in Fisheries Management and Marine Invertebrate Zoology from Humboldt State University. Following seven years as a research biologist, I began sculpting Marine and Aquatic subjects in 1979. I strive to sculpt my subjects in a way that combines scientific accuracy and detail with an elegant and graceful presentation. Since moving to the Oregon Coast in 2008 I have also been building freeform furniture out of the local driftwood in such abundance here.
