My work as a sculptor for the past twenty eight years has been primarily in the medium of stone from the hardest to the softest, as well from the smallest sculptures to monumental. I have created works in Native Contemporary Sculpture and have created works in the Abstract Contemporary . Having lived in Santa Fe New Mexico for twenty years has afforded me the opportunity to experience art of all styles and mediums and so i strive to evolve my work to share with the world.

I Have Worked With

  • Jim Sardonis and I collaborated in 2007 for the THOREAU WABANAKI TRAILS MONUMENT in Greenville, Maine  commissioned by Maine Woods Forever , Roxanne Quimby .  The canoe represents Thoreaus' guides and the sculpture that Jim created represents Thoreau.(see image video gallery)

  • Commissioned in 2008 to create four sculptures for the Medicine Trail on Indian Island via PNHA Director Craig Sanborns' tenure to beautify our community from a cultural perspective to inspire pride for future generations.

  • Selected for the 2012 symposium @the University of Maine Orono to create a two piece monumental sculpture for the dept. of Forestry &Wildlife dept. of the University that was made available through the Percent for the Arts of Maine as part of a renovation grant for NUTTING HALL @UMO (see profile image &image &video gallery)
