"I grew up having a special interest in horses and Indians and the western way of life.”
"My upbringing in the extreme north western corner of Colorado where ranching and Indians and cowboys and bandits existed influenced me immensely."
"I strive very hard to depict athleticism with grace and beauty as well"
"Although I’m not a cowboy, In my area of art, I am required to compete with traditional male cowboy artists. Because of this I am driven to prove that I can create pieces every bit as good and perhaps better than their output."
"I also do my own patinas, so I can add a touch of color to my own individual taste. All of this makes my pieces a bit different from the conventional sculptures of western art and animals."
"With my work, I want people to smile and feel good when they see my art. I want them to appreciate the detail and the accuracy of the subject that I’m portraying."
"In the near future, I will continue to strive to create pieces that are better and better, in their portrayal of beauty and grace and detail."
"I believe art and the associated appreciation of beauty is inherent within the human brain. It is an element of the environment which we all crave because it makes us “feel good” when we see something that affects us."
