Ever since I was a young boy, I've been interested in creating beautiful works of art that would move people and make them feel. As a professional Artist and Sculptor I am still driven by the same desire I had as a child, and I am committed to the creation of beautiful and meaningful works of art, whether they be monumental pieces, portrait busts, imaginative or allegorical pieces.

  • Process: Conceptual drawings and renderings in clay. More drawings and more concepts in clay. Deep contemplation and reflection. And then more drawings and concepts in clay. Desired concept chosen, the work begins and is finished, and pending approval it is off to the foundry to be molded and cast in bronze.
  • Specializing in but not limited to:

         Monumental works in bronze

         Historical works in bronze

         Portraiture in bronze and stone

         Figures

         Allegorical and Symbolic pieces 

         Memorials

         Imaginative works 

         Altar pieces
