Biography:

Most of my career has been working with children in both public and private schools.  I am recently retired as the Director of Special Education in the Dallas School District. My art career began about 3 and 1/2 years ago when I was asked to participate in a gallery show at Marquis Art and Frame in Wilkes-Barre, PA.  Prior to that time I had dabbled in working with clay over a number of years.

The sculptural clay pieces that I create are often of the trope l'oiel style.  I have been influenced by the style made popular by Marilyn Levine.  Each sculptural piece is unique; completely hand built and often has a "quirky" appeal.  I enjoy adding a touch of realism by adding real objects to the sculpture, for example, shoelaces in the sneakers.  I enjoy creating all types of every day objects such as shoes, bags, caps, purses, and even underwear.

While I did not receive formal training, I did spend time in the studios of Lori Kerrigan and Maria Livrone learning the basic techniques of hand building.  The one constant throughout my art experience has been my wife, Linda Keck, who advises and steers me through the creative process.  Being a talented artist in her own right, I benefit daily from her advice and support.

I have had the opportunity to have numerous gallery shows, and I have had my work juried into a number of art events in Northeastern and Lehigh Valley Pennsylvania.
