His work has been exhibited widely in galleries and museums throughout the United States, including the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, the Delaware Art Museum, the Wharton Esherick Museum and the Bennington Museum. His work is in public and private collections throughout the United States, and in private residences in Canada and England.
