A chance meeting while I taught at the Minnetonka Center for the Arts led to a painting commission. That commision led to work on the Dayton’s Auditorium Display. Painting for Dayton’s segued into sculpture work. Interest in both my painting and sculpture spread and in 1989, I became a full-time studio artist. Since then, I have produced sculptures for clients as a diverse as Disney/Buena Vista Television, Animal Planet Television/PBS, the Minnesota Opera, the Minneapolis Downtown Council, Paisley Park Studio (Prince), Children’s Hospital and Macy’s. Over the last 19 years, 1100 sculptures have been produced for the annual Dayton’s / Marshall Fields / Macy’s alone.
