Artist Statement

I’m a graduate of the Vancouver School of Art where I studied sculpture and specialized in bronze casting. After graduation, I worked with Jack Harman at the Harman Sculpture Foundry in Gastown. In 1983 I moved to Richmond, BC and became self-employed, setting up a studio workshop and foundry at which I would utilize the lost wax method to cast my own as well as other artists’ works over the years.

I have been involved in numerous group sculpture shows throughout BC and Washington State. Past and present affiliations include terms as President of SSBC (2008-12); City of Richmond Public Art Commission (2003-05) and the City of Richmond Street Banner Selection Committee (2007). My work is in both public and private collections in Canada and the USA, which include the Vancouver Department of Public Works, the Provincial Collection in Victoria, BC and the Music Society Building, UBC.

I first create my sculpture from clay because of its manipulative and spontaneous quality. Through a lengthy process to completion, I finally arrive at the visual beauty and permanence of a bronze.
