I had only five weeks (15 hours) to complete this 1/3 life sized sculpture. The pose was quite complex as well. It's a bit rough around the edges, but provided a good challenge. Since it doesn't have any armature, it can also be fired.
I'm a figurative sculptor from Seattle. While earning a BFA at Scripps College, I studied with Aldo Casanova in Claremont, CA as well as Romano Luccachini in Florence, Italy. My MFA comes from the New York academy of Art where I studied under Harvey Citron, Randy Melick and Tony Visco among others. Currently, I teach at the Digipen Institute of Technology in Redmond WA.
