Retired computer analyst from Boeing July 1999.

 

Throughout most of my working life I rode the wave of computers into industry and into the home while working for IBM (15 years) and Boeing (21 years). I was challenged with learning something new every day as computers advanced at an extremely accelerated pace.. My artistic interests were left on the back burner,so I have not been a lifelong sculptor or artist and I really didn't care for art history until I met Babs Mellor.

 

I Began woodcarving classes with Norma Nicks January of 1992. I have taken sculpturing and woodcarving classes with over 25 different instructors since then. I enjoy woodcarving the most, and clay sculpture second. I have branched out into antler carving and bronze sculpture. I am continuing to learn.

 

My favorite sculpturing subjects are realistic human, animals and relief sculpturing. However, I will try most anything. In the beginning I carved mostly designs by other artists, but soon found that designing and creating my own sculptures is where the real artistic creativity is to be found.
