Sleeping Beauty

I started this piece before we moved from North Carolina, so it traveled across the country. I worked many months on this piece and in the end, was never able to see it completed. Like everything else I work on, this one was just inspiration out of the air. I wanted to try my hand [...]

Smiling Face

After completing "Looking Home" I wanted to try a full bust once again. This time focusing on proportions and really trying to make it look lifelike.

First Sculpture

This was the first figure I ever sculpted. I was always fascinated by sculpture and I love using my hands to create things. I like to wood work, I like to build, I love erector sets and legos, any activity where I can use my hands and create. I got the notion in my head [...]

HMS Terror
