WWII U.S. Marine Raider Memorial
Soul of the Forward and Faithful
"For the Soul of the elite force unit is its men. And if there is one thing the Raiders didn't lack, it was soul." -- Robert A. Buerlein from 'Our Kind of War'
The memorial presents a group of U.S. Marine Raiders tackling a sloped terrain in the jungles of the Pacific. At right, a Navajo code talker quickly relays information on forward operations before his radio signal is picked up by the Japanese. Ahead, a marine and his German shepherd scout the dense foliage to avoid a potential ambush. At the ready, the Marine Raider holds his Browning Automatic Rifle close to his chest while keeping an eye out for snipers hidden in the trees. The panel behind the three men serves to provide a visual context of place with additional Raiders visible through the vegetation. The work embodies the Marine Raiders working together with conviction, cooperation, and commitment to succeed in their mission.

Christopher Windley Lonsdale's early vision for a boy’s preparatory school burgeoned into a world class co-ed boarding institution, currently celebrating its centennial. Sculpted using a combination of living models and old photographs of Lonsdale, this founder's statue stands as a welcome to students, faculty, and visitors to the beautiful Shawnigan Lake School campus on Vancouver Island, B.C., Canada. The first headmaster was forever fond of his loyal, pure-bred dogs. To achieve historical accuracy, the artist consulted experts on the nuances of period-specific German shepherd anatomy.
Bronze 100 x 48 x 48" 21.75 x 13.25 x 12.75” (maquette)
Honorable Mention, Portrait Society of America, Member’s Only Competition, 2010
The sculpture captures the enduring life-time relationship between two sisters. The pose was chosen by the parents as Jackie and Candice commonly hugged each other cheek to cheek from early ages. Their strong ties have continued into adulthood. Part of the sculpture process required for the girls to model over thirty hours, and a majority of the time was spent standing near each other with faces pressed close. While working on this piece, it was not uncommon to listen in on their conversations, conversations sharing advice, recipes, and other daily experiences creating on-going bonds that will continue into the future. As sisters in life's longest relationship, Candice and Jacqueline are already experienced in the most meaningful part of life—warm, loving relationship.

Skansie Brothers Park
Sculpture Commission for Gig Harbor, WA
The medallion portrays founding fisherman Andrew Skansie working on his 1912 fishing purseiner, the Aeroplane. Skansie stands on the turntable of his boat pulling in the cork line with a pile of nets behind him. His figure is representative of an individual with whom we can identify. He represents the courage and steadfast determination required to survive in the early 1900's in the Pacific Northwest. Depicted in the background are the beautiful waters and trees of Washington’s Puget Sound. This low relief sculpture is cast in concrete and installed at the center of an outdoor pavilion in Gig Harbor’s downtown Skansie Brothers' Park.
