Bronze relief wall hanging sculpture with a ferric nitrate patina. The mythic Phoenix as a female form.

When I was 18 I ran away to sea.I spent 5 years in the navy and traveled through out South East Asia and the western Pacific region and Japan. My father was military and I lived in Europe as a child in the early 1960s. I've lived all over the US from West Coast to East and my studio is currently on the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland.I was most influenced in my teens by the work of the illustrator Frank Frazetta whose work had a signature style that I fell in love with.Later on I became exposed to other artists like Rembrandt, seeing some of his pen and ink drawings in a museum.For a time I toured around to all the science fiction and comic conventions I could get to, showing and selling my work. At this time my work started to become larger and while I was still doing fantasy art I was doing canvases 5 and 6 feet on a side. I eventually received a BA in fine art from a small southwestern college. In college I began seriously drawing from models as well as carving stone. I learned the rudiments of bronze casting, pouring by hand.Most of my work lately is figurative with erotic overtones. Fantasy illustration is always somewhat erotic and I still go back to doing a bit now and then.After college I apprenticed at the Johnson Atelier in Mercerville, NJ. There I worked on the sculptures of Seward Johnson, Kiki Smith and many others.I feel like I'm still trying to find my voice and I'm influenced by every piece of art and music I'm exposed to as well as culture in general.
