I invite you to journey with me through the Gospel as you view my work. Ever since childhood, the Gospel and clay have played a central role in my life.  Sculpting allows me to speak from the heart of the emotion and love I feel for Christ, through each Gospel story I read… My sculptures range from tabletop to monumental; all the pieces you see here can be enlarged. I would be happy to speak with you regarding an idea for a specific sculpture.

Thank you for visiting!

Lord Jesus, in the early morning mist carried across the lake on the spirit wind your voice touches me; Heed the secret to life, do all out of love.
