At a young age I started experimenting with many different mediums, materials and techniques for color, style and textures. I was selling my work on a professional level in my early teens. By age seventeen I had received nine national awards for my art. I attended a commercial art school and studied architecture.
Upon completing high school, I traveled to Washington D.C. to study on a scholarship. I had the privilege of studying under the Italian stone carvers who were completing the National Cathedral there. This is where I developed a passion for stone carving. Over the past 30 years I have worked with different fine art mediums, including carving marble, granite, various semi precious stones, bronze, wood, ivory, silversmithing, drawing and painting. My work has been shown in galleries and museums throughout the southwest and has been featured in newspapers, magazines and international publications
After working with several galleries in Scottsdale, Arizona, I had learned some prominent clients had a desire to reintroduce products they had handled years before. Miniature architectural sports stadium replicas.
It was at that time I was commissioned by these gallery owners to design and produce something more suitable to be sold as fine art. Through extensive research, the materials would include cast-bronze and stone, mounted on a marble base with crystals in a solid brass light fixture. These crystals radiate and refract the light to give the appearance of being at your favorite ballpark, under the bright lights
Yours to enjoy for many years,
