Born and raised in western Pennsylvania and attending the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, I have been painting and sculpturing for over 50 years.  I must say it’s true that an artist dips his brush into his soul, and how fortunate I am to sculpt with my heart!  I have sculpted numerous fountains of life-size bronze figures and animals.  My painting background has helped in the designs of my sculptures.  I find as I paint I’m always thinking of what the subject looks like three-dimensionally as well.  My painting and sculpturing styles are marked with an acute sense of detail and intensity.
