I've drawn from as far back as I can remember. With degrees in Visual Communications and Industrial Design, I've pursued a successful career as a design consultant in New York and Los Angeles but always found myself sketching from life incessantly. I finally gave in to my repressed desire to create figurative art, and began sculpting with some success recently. I owe much to the guidance and mentorship of professional artists, instructors and friends, without whom the recognition and achievements would never have occurred. I continue to consult on various design projects and create representational figurative sculptures and drawings.
