Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

There are many roads to Rome. The important thing is to get to your destination. If you cannot use a direct route then the important thing is not to give up but to try some other way over and over until you get there. Success is largely perspiration with a little bit of inspiration.

When you do not have a map you have to have a belief that you can find your way. This is a major life lesson for me. I once had a dog, Peanut, he was a Beagle with a great nose. I used to use a tennis racket to hit a tennis ball he would hunt and retrieve. He got so he would start to hunt before I would hit the ball so I would hit the ball in the other direction. This would give him big trouble so he would come back and I would tell him to fetch. He would start in a small circle and make bigger and bigger circles until he found the ball. Life lesson. Somewhere along you have to have enough success that you can believe in your life experience to keep on plugging away. The circuitous route is many times the only way to find your solution.

It is a maquette as well as a small sculpture. A metal fabricator will measure off of it and make metal boxes and weld them together to make it any size. Great for a corporate logo statement. You control all costs.

Artist Profile

Born: 1941

Hometown: Burlington, WI

Based in: Burlington, WI

I have an ambitious approach to life ... and to art ... make something happen every day ... but most of all have fun doing it! A sculptor first, and now working in 2D, I do my best to do just that. Presented here are examples of some of my work. •• My sculpture runs the gamut from abstract, to figurative, to architectural. The materials and methods used are diverse ... from figures modeled in clay or wax, then cast in pewter or bronze ... to aluminum maquettes (produced by evaporative pattern casting) which serve as the 3D blueprints for the pieces that are enlarged and fabricated from sheet metal of all kinds.
