In each sculpture, whether in clay to bronze or in wood, I strive to find a special quality of spirit. The challenge is to catch a fluid moment that reflects more of the personality, playfulness or effort being expended toward the next step in the story. The energy of a sculpture grows out of that anticipated motion.

Working from life and sometimes photos, I love capturing special horses and moments from the modern West I treasure.

Growing up in Montana taught me resourcefulness and independence early and often. Being able to ride all day from the back door instilled great freedom, a well of peace and the wonder of nature - all enhanced by the intuitive communication between horse and rider. As a child, I designed and carved a herd of wooden stick-horses. Over time, I explored my sense of horses through drawing, painting and sculpture in many media. Other animals and the interplay between them, fascinate me almost as much.
