In 2004, I started a gradual transition to an encore career as a sculptor. In June of 2011, I finally was able to step out of my previous career in science and become a full-time sculptor. I have been trained in classical figure sculpture by Ben Hammond, Hal Stewart, Lincoln Fox, Vala Ola and Rick Casali. My work has been displayed at the West Valley Art Museum, the Phoenix Sky Harbor Art Museum, the Tempe Center for the Arts, the Shemer Art Center and Museum, and numerous juried exhibitions of the Glendale Arts Council and Arizona Artists? Guild. I am a past-President of the Arizona Artists Guild (AAG) and past-Chairperson of the AAG Sculptor?s Group.
