Much of my sculpture has linear structure. This is both a result of the materials I select to use, and my inclination toward linear forms which probably grew out of my love for drawing. The reclaimed wood is mostly scrap from cabinet shops, and much of the metal is salvaged from recycling bins.

Another body of work which I consider important to include in this exhibition is my endangered species series. My concern for the dwindling resources in our natural world has led me to raise consciousness in this realm.

I am very excited to be showing in this mini-gallery at Good Dad Studios (a new art studio complex in Austin). 

In May, I will be showing an assortment of my artwork with an emphasis on jewelry and metal wall pieces, and one chess set. (always one chess set).  

This will be a permanent location where I can select what I wish to exhibit and make appointments to show my art. The entire complex will have a monthly open house the second Saturday of the month. 

The entrance to my South Side Gallery faces the parking lot on the south side of the building. (by the pink railing)


Hope to see you at these events.


Places you can find my artwork (without me) when things open again.
Gallery Locations:

The Hive Gallery of the Bee Cave Arts Foundation. I have shown artwork there including wall sculptures and sculptures on pedestals. This gallery is in the Hill Country Galleria. There was recently a membership exhibit and my ‘Quilt for Bees’ was shown.

Outdoor Public Sculpture Locations:

June 11, ’21 I installed my ‘Would You Like Some?’ and ‘Hands’ sculptures in Old Town Keller. They will be there for 2 years.

I have some of my larger outdoor sculptures at several public art locations where they will be shown for a year. I will be installing sculptures in several locations in the next few months. (Sept.-Nov.)

My Curly Fish sculpture is installed in downtown Round Rock. It is near the Downtowner Gallery.

I installed 2 sculptures in Marble Falls in fall 2020. They will be there for 2 years.

My Bird in Flight sculpture was recently installed in a park in Lampassas and will be there until fall 2022.

My Angle Burst sculpture is installed in Jewett, TX as part of the Leon County Art Trails.

In Bastrop, are 2 transformer boxes that I painted summer of 2017. They are located by the movie theatre. You can see them by entering the parking lot and drive toward the back of the movie theatre on the east side toward Farm St.

2018-2021 Past Exhibitions:

– For the WEST Studio Tour in May 2019, I showed at ACC Highland Campus.
– I showed at SCULPTFEST April 26-28, 2019 in Round Rock at Centennial Plaza.
– The New Texas Talent exhibition in Dallas accepted one of my wood wall sculptures in their annual summer exhibition. I was very excited to have been juried into this exhibit.
– I had several artworks in the exhibition, “I Found You” at Link and Pin Gallery in July. It was a group exhibition of artworks utilizing found and recycled materials.
– I had 3 pieces in the Texas Society of Sculptors exhibit at the Georgetown Library. The exhibit was up for much of the summer and September.
– In the spring of ‘18, I showed a selection of my sculptural and relief artworks in the 26th annual SculptFest in Round Rock, TX. The event was held in Centennial Plaza and will hopefully be there again in 2022.
– I exhibited again at the WEST Studio Tour in May @ Blue Genie. I was #59 on theTour. I showed a large variety of my artwork including several chess sets.
– I had a solo exhibition of my metal wall art at the UT Performing Arts Center on the 4th floor from Jan. through mid-March 2018.

An interesting thing that I found out a few years ago is that I have several ancestors who were metal workers. I have always considered myself primarily a sculptor, although I created mostly 2-D art for a while.  I worked in clay for a number of years and then started migrating to metal.  I enjoy what it can do.  Now that I found out there were 2 tinsmiths, a blacksmith, and also a tailor in my ancestry (I’ve been doing a metal quilt series), it seems that I’m following a path that was set in motion a while back. (?)  I wonder what kind of things they made.
