ARTIST STATEMENT

 

My first sculpting experience was with my late father when I was thirteen years old.  I received the Boy Scout merit badge for sculpting with his help.  My father was not a sculptor, but a great father who helped two sons achieve the rank of Eagle Scout.   In 1989, twenty-eight years after my first and only sculpting session with my father, I decided to try the impossible and surprise him with a bronze bust for his 69th birthday.  His doctors had said he had less than a year to live.  I wanted to honor him and come to terms with his passing.  As I proceeded with the project, I felt a long suppressed desire unfolding and developing.  After his death ten months later, I understood that his parting gift to me was the realization that I could sculpt.   Realistic figurative and portrait sculptures would give me the greatest pleasure in expressing my creativity and remembering my father.      

The inspiration for completing my father’s bust came from a father and son team of sculptors from Virginia, Bill and David Turner.  They are not only excellent sculptors, but also artists in human kindness.     

In December 1990, I had a private visit with sculptor Walker Hancock at his studio in Lanesville, Massachusetts.  That first meeting developed into a friendship that inspired me to strive for the quality and realism that Walker symbolized through his work and teachings.                          

 

PROFESSIONAL TRAINING

 

I took a graduate class on-line through the Academy of Art University, San Francisco, California, working toward a MFA/Sculpture. I have a MBA from East Carolina University and a business degree from Wake Forest University, where my next encounter with art on a formal basis, occurred.  I took three years of painting classes under Professor Ray Prohaska. My sculpting training began with Marc Mellon’s portrait sculpture class held at Montoya’s in West Palm Beach, Florida and Dr. Wilfred Stedman’s Anatomy for Artist held at the Scottsdale Artist School in Arizona.  I have also taken a class under George Lundeen in March 1991.  While at the Loveland Sculpture in the Park event in August 1991, I attended Patrick Kipper’s patination class.  In January 1992, I attended Bruno Lucchesi’s class at Scottsdale.  In October 1995, I completed studies at the 1995 Portrait Arts Festival sponsored by the American Society of Portrait Artists. I attended Veryl Goodnight’s “Sculpting the Horse” in Santa Fe, New Mexico in January 1996.  In February 1996, I took the Betty Pat Gatliff class on Forensic Art: Facial Reconstruction on the Skull for Identification,    sponsored    by    the    Traffic   Institute   of   Northwestern University.  I completed a master’s workshop at Richard MacDonald’s Studio in California on July 11-15, 2005, and attended Philippe Faraut’s portrait workshop in Georgia, September 23-25, 2005.   I attended the gross anatomy course at Florida State University, College of Medicine during the summer of 2006.  Attended Louise Peterson’s “Sculpting the Dog” course held at Brookgreen Garden, South Carolina September 14-17, 2011.

 

PUBLIC COMMISSIONS

I completed my first public commission of Dr. William John Bailey for a medical library named in his honor at Naples Community Hospital on October 10, 1990.   Other public commissions have included: “Bud” Dixon, the Mayor of Morehead City, North Carolina for placement in city hall; Dr. V.W.

Thatcher from West Palm Beach for St. Mary’s Hospital; Mr. Byron L. Southwell of Tifton, Georgia for Tift General Hospital; Jim Hall for the Florida Health Care Association; Jacob Manousakis’ memorial; Roseanne Bowers of Tampa; and Kyla Jernigan my granddaughter.  The dual busts of Robert and Doris Klabzuba were unveiled December 1, 2005 for the Harris Methodist Health Foundation, Fort Worth, Texas; in April, 2007 a life-size seated figure of George Monardo, San Francisco, California; in November 2007, a bust of John Partipilo, Dynamic Manufacturing, Inc., Melrose Park, Illinois; in February 2009, “The Educator” of Herman Sorin and his daughter, Janice, for the Public Library in Ocean City, MD; on March 9th, 2009, in Tallahassee, the “Officer Down” memorial at the Florida State Capitol; and in 2009, Bishop James A. Griffin for Ohio Dominican University.   In 2010, I was embedded with our military in Iraq and Afghanistan and am currently completing 21 portrait busts of military for an exhibit which will tour around the US in 2017-2018 (www.honoringthetroops.com). In 2014, completed and donated a bust of retired Sergeant At Arms, Earnest Sumner to the Florida House of Representatives.  On March 10th, 2015, completion of a memorial statue of Lindsay Lewis, daughter of Justice Fred and Judy Lewis of Tallahassee was dedicated at Miami Children’s Hospital.
