Awards & Achievements

  • Oct, 2018

    The Society of Animal Artists' Annual Exhibition was held at the beautiful Museum of Western & Wildlife Art in St. Petersburg, FL which made this award extra special.  It was presented for "The Hunters" which is the second in my series of sculptures commenting of various aspects of man's relationship with animals.  "When a hunter targets the most magnificent male lion he can find, he is not only killing an awesome creature and removing those genes from being passed on to future generations of lions, he is also sentencing the present cubs of that lion's pride to death by the next male lion to move in and take over the duties of pride patriarch."

    The Breckenridge Fine Arts Center agreed to waive the requirement that bronze limited edition pieces entered in their Annual Juried Show be created within the last three years and so accepted my "At The Waterhole" into this year's show.  Then, with the addition of selecting it for this very special award, I feel they were acknowledging that an artwork that deserves recognition retains that distinction for more than three years.  I am honored and grateful to the Breckenridge Fine Arts center for this acknowledgement.
