"Lean on me", depicts a tender moment of a Brown (Grizzly) bear sow with her cub. This piece is based on a photo by Alaskan wildlife photographer Alissa Crandall. One look at "Lean on me" and I knew that I needed to put that picture in bronze.

My "Moose" sculpture recently won the Kentucky Wildlife Award that is given to the exhibits best work at the Kentucky National Wildlife Art Exhibit .
Michigan Art Castings, a fine art bronze foundry collaborating with sculptors nationwide, has just recently opened. Most future orders of my table-top and smaller size sculptures will now be processed by this foundry. I'm confident you'll be very pleased with the attention to detail and craftsmanship associated with every piece.
"Moose" was recently selected for the Society of Animal Artists 53rd Annual Exhibition. With that, my third SAA show selection, I have attained Signature Member status.

My wife, Vicki, and I (pictured above) travel the country attending art shows. I thoroughly enjoy meeting people at the shows, and I hope if there's a show in your area, you'll take the time to introduce yourself and and chat about our mutual appreciation of wildlife art.
