Sculpture and Carvings

My sculpture and carving work spans from the very large (theatrical sets and parade floats) to the very small (sculptural illustrations and miniatures).  My materials include: polymer clays, foam carving, woodworking, ceramics, and found-objects.  Enjoy browsing the gallery, and look for some matching Concept Art on the "Sketches" page.
