What artist inspires you? Why?
The French animalier, Antoine-Louis Barye, has influenced my work more than any other artist. I studied art history at Kansas City Art Institute and sculptors from the past - going back to the Greeks and before - are of interest to me. Barye worked from his pencil drawings which is a technique I have used for many years when modeling in clay.
How do you come up with an idea for a new piece of artwork?
Typically, I see something in nature that presents an idea. I spend much of my time in the field and find it a necessary element to my creativity.
Where is the most inspirational place you've visited lately?
Brookgreen Gardens in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, home of the Huntington Sculpture Garden - the accredited museum houses the largest and most important collection of American sculpture in existence. I have been there many times and continue to be inspired by works created by American sculptors.
