bronze sculpture, 13" x 20"

What shall I do with this absurdity-
O heart, O troubled heart-this caricature,
Decrepit age that has been tied to me
As to a dog's tail?
Never had I more
Excited, passionate, fantastical
Imagination, nor an ear and eye
That more expected the impossible...
Yeats, The Tower I
I am a native Adirondacker, I have lived and traveled in Europe for many years and these added life experiences have influenced my work. I came to Plattsburgh State with very little formal art education and a great desire to learn.
My grandfather and father were stonemasons who were descended from a stonecutter from Aberdeen, Scotland. With this long tradition in our family, it was only natural that I was comfortable with the materials that sculpture afforded me. It was a familiar medium using my hands in a "working man's" fashion. I was able to concentrate my artistic energy into creating sculpture. A close second were the drawing classes, which I feel is the cornerstone to art itself.
The opportunity to have access to various disciplines, studio space and the support and encouragement of the professors has given me the tools to continue my work after graduation and to establish my own studio. These years have been a wonderful experience.

The Plattsburgh State Art Museum is comprised of over 4,500 works of art, representing numerous regions of the world, from the ancient to the contemporary. Works are displayed within our three main galleries, an outdoor sculpture park and exhibition areas throughout the campus. These facilities produce over twenty-five exhibitions a year of both a national and regional nature. Expanding upon the pluralistic ideal of Andre Malreaux's concept of a "Museum Without Walls," the Plattsburgh State Art Museum has become an open visual art resource for the College and the Champlain Valley/Adirondack Region.
