I have always been fascinated by mountain landscapes and the colors and patterns in
nature; the movement and line of water over river rocks, lenticular cloud contours that
hang over mountain tops, and the flowing curves and whorls of wood grain that form the
natural biologic structure of trees. I find a meaningful relationship between the inner,
structural beauty and mystery of trees, and our own inner anatomical and mindful spirit.
After a 30 year medical practice in neurology, I changed careers. I apprenticed (12 months)
as a resident artist in studio arts and sculpture at Thunderhead Press of Nevada and
as a resident artist in sculpture (12 months) at Virtu Studio Inc., Nevada. As an emerging
sculptor and installation artist I exhibit my work internationally.
