Wood is my favorite artistic medium though I do carve some stone. I’m constantly on the prowl for interesting pieces be it on a shoreline, in the forest, along the road or in my wood pile. My sculptures, human and animal forms, are considered interpretive carvings. My bird sculptures are not realistic showing intricate detailed feathers. The natural shape of the found piece of wood usually predetermines what the final form will be. Often the pieces are abstract enough where people have different opinions about what they are actually looking at. Many are whimsical. I’ve been an artist for most of my life. I did small whittled carvings as a boy scout then began creating welded metal abstract pieces while working as a bricklayer in the 1970’s. After moving to rural Upper Bucks County I studied sculpture at the Baum School of Art with some prominent Pennsylvania sculptors. In addition to exhibiting in regional shows I now share my skills at my Thatcher Hill Sculpture Studio with my own students and other aspiring artists who need a place to work in an art inspiring atmosphere. I am available for school and organization presentations and I do commission work. Include one of my unique sculptures in your art collection and you will be certain to create interesting conversation.
