I have been creating bronze sculpture since 1981. My love of nature is the primary influence on my sculpture and I am best known for my bronze sculptures of animals, namely thoroughbred horses, birds and dogs. One notable critic on encountering my very first bronze sculpture Point to Point at Saratoga said I could turn out to be "The Remington of the Racetrack."
My most recent major sculpture Commission was for a bronze of three life-size St Bernard dogs for the new College of Veterinary Medicine at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. I created the three models for the bronze in clay and Styrofoam and cast them via the lost wax method at the world famous Polich Tallix foundry in New York.
My bronze sculptures may be found in numerous museum, private, corporate and public collections throughout the World as well as on permanent public display in Washington DC, New York NY, Annapolis MD, and Birmingham and Montgomery, Al. My studio is located in Naples, Florida where my work may be seen by scheduling an appointment. Commissions for new work, either figurative or abstract, are welcomed.
All of my bronze sculpture editions have been sold-out, but I do from time to time, have a collector contact me with respect to selling a bronze of mine from their collection. I recently received a call from a collector who is in the process of downsizing and would like to sell a pair of bronzes Point to Point and Inquiry that her family purchased in the early 1980's. These bronzes are available for purchase on conclusion of my month long Retrospective Show in December at the Art Centers of Bonita Springs. Inquiry was published as a Limited Edition of 15, one of which is in the collection of the Kentucky Derby Museum. Point to Point, my very first bronze sculpture was produced as a limited edition of 20. This sculpture was featured on the cover of the then most famous sporting art gallery in the World, New York's King Gallery as well as being included in a 1989 show at the iconic Midtown Gallery in New York.
The Tranovich Gallery at the Art Centers of Bonita Springs is conducting a major retrospective of my 40 year career as a sculptor from December 6th through the 26th. The show includes a full range of my sculpture from the traditional to the avant-garde in media including bronze, paper, and Styrofoam. The opening reception is Friday December 6th from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. There is no charge for this event and all are welcomed to attend.
