I share my home and studio with three very special companions—a pack of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels named Beau, Dash, and Hugo. They are constantly adding energy, love, and inspiration to my life.

Dogs are special for many reasons, in particular their enthusiasm for life, the depth of their love, and their individual personalities. They communicate with an absolute truth, without masks or filters. They’ve taught me a lot about nature, other animals, and ultimately myself.

My sculptures of Duncan, Brody, Carmine, Wasabi, Chucho, and Newman were all private commissions. It was such a privilege to get to know these dogs and their owners, and an honor to be asked to capture their likeness and spirit in sculpture.
