My Original Art Figures have the artistic expression and quality craftsmanship, individually sculpted in polymer clay, creating a detail of realism. The use of coloring, texture and costuming are added to finish a balanced theme. The sculptures are a collection of tradition, myth, legend, and yesteryear. I have figures already made to purchase or they can be commissioned from a concept of your choice.
In addition to original sculptures, I also do original artwork in figure animation, authentic automata, marionettes, ladies and a true favorite of mine--Renaissance pieces and reproductions of the Old Masters' works. Other popular themes of my designs are figurine Santas and poseable porcelain Angels. Whether a collector or a lover of fine art, my work is intended to please the viewer and compliment one's decor of living.
I am an artist who lives in Northeastern Ohio. I enjoyed two dimensional art until 1981 when I started to study three dimensional works with a local artist. For the next six years, I studied the structure of the different clays and basic mold-making techniques. Applying this knowledge, I progressed to one-of-kind sculptures with each piece radiating a lifelike essence. My first collectible was copyrighted in 1988 with progressive works added on an ongoing basis. It is my privilege to be able to express myself through my work and I thank God, my family, my friends and my clientele for their continued support and confidence.
"Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him. As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God."
