Sculpture | Dogs

I share my home and studio with two very special companions–a pair of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels named Louie and Beau. They are constantly adding energy, love, and inspiration to my life.

Dogs are special for many reasons, in particular their enthusiasm for life, the depth of their love, their individual personalities, and their unwavering devotion. Dogs communicate with an absolute truth, without masks or filters. Louie and Beau have taught me a lot about nature, other animals, and ultimately myself.

Duncan, Brody, Carmine, Wasabi, Chucho, and Newman were all completed as private commissions. It was such a privilege to get to know these dogs and their owners, and an honor to be asked to capture their likeness and spirit in sculpture. The entire process reinforced my belief in the power of art as a signpost to feelings and experiences.
