Portrait sculptures Commissions

Smaller Sculpture For Sale

After my major public commission of the first Vietnam Veteran Memorial in the USA in 1983, and the commission by the National Ballet of Canada to create four of their lead dancers, I decided to fulfill my dream of becoming a full time figurative sculptor. While giving numerous art and sculpture classes, workshops and creating sculpture commissions, I studied sculptural art in Scottsdale, AZ, and was granted a one year sculpture sabbatical in Pietrasanta, Italy. In 2000 I was commissioned to create the sculpture of "Elvis at 13" for Elvis Presley Birthplace in Tupelo, MS., and in 2012 "Becoming" also for the Birthplace. During the last few years I have decided to concentrate on commissioned busts and smaller sculptures only which I will feature below occasionally.
