 I discovered and began experimenting with Polyester resin as a medium during my studies
at the University of South Dakota. I continued to explore the sculptural possibilities of resin
while attending Kansas City Art Institute, graduating in 1983 with a Bachelor of Fine Art degree.
   Ten years passed before I was able to devote my time to create a collection of work, and then
another twenty year hiatus after that, which brings us to the present. I did creative work during 
those in-between years, sculpting commissions, and ornamental plaster restoration, but now
finally my studio is dedicated to making my art, creating with resin and wood.
   I research and prepare for each piece, then work intuitively with the process developing the
future sculpture in the mold. The casting is then honed into a form that implies infinity while
balancing the tension between the interior and exterior. The base created specifically for each
resin piece is an integral part of the sculpture. It is the horizon line and where the required
illumination can reside presenting the ephemeral to last indefinitely.
