August 1, 2018: Commissioned Nest Sculpture

This beautiful nest is the beginning of a commission piece a friend has hired me to create. I am going to build it a little “home”. If you have a special nest you would like to have created into a piece of art, you can find more information in my SHOP or email me.

July 27: Obi!

This is my dog Obi!  He is three years old and is now retired from the racing industry.  He was born in Iowa, transported to Florida where he never raced well and was put into the adoption system (they used to exterminate ex-racers) just before his second birthday.  We can’t even imagine a time without him.  …

Feb 2, 2018: Spanish Moss

This spanish moss is intricately woven as the base of this nest. The pine needles and leaves sit on top. I am designing these sculptures so the front can be seen as easily as the back.Look at the back of this nest!

“Loop” 7″x11″x3″ wood (repurposed teak from a boat), branches, grass leaves, nest, map, plexiglass. I completed this piece after months of troubleshooting glass vs. plexiglass.
