These larger than life sculptures are installed at the entrance of Sandhill Shores, an exclusive community located across from a wildlife estuary on Galveston Island on the east Texas shore of the Gulf of Mexico.
The Sandhill Crane is surprisingly graceful in flight and migrates yearly to Texas for the winter. It’s fun to watch the elegant beauty of this wonder of nature as it walks in the wetlands of south Texas.
St. Mary's University Diamondback Rattle Snake
Opening its mouth while moving forward to strike, a rattler can move with lightning speed. The Western Diamondback Rattlesnake is the mascot of St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, Texas.
This bronze is five feet in diameter and stands three & a half feet high above the natural limestone base. This monument was presented to St. Mary’s University by the Senior Class of 2000 and has been installed on campus near the Convocation Center.
The War Dog Memorial
The sculpture depicts a German Shepherd as if it’s ready to step into the unknown danger ahead.
The monument is dedicated to all the K-9 Soldiers, WAR DOGS OF AMERICA, who have served this nation faithfully and well from the Revolutionary War to the present day as scouts, sentries, and members of search and rescue teams. Serving in all branches of the armed forces, these courageous canines have saved thousands of soldiers, often at the cost of their own lives, and have brought a touch of home to the madness of the battlefield.
This bronze is two times life-size and stands 48 inches tall from the paw to the shoulder. It is mounted on a granite base. It was installed in the spring of 2005, in a park in Suffolk County, Long Island, New York
Class of 2004 Air Force Academy Plaque
This was the first year I sculpted the emblem from the Senior Class Ring. It was completed for the Air Force Academy in Colorado. Every year they honor the senior class by dedicating a cast aluminum plaque which is mounted on the wall of the chapel. This is a tradition that dates to the opening of the academy.
Class of 2005 Air Force Academy Plaque
This is the second year I was chosen to sculpt the Senior Class Ring Plaque for the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, CO. I am currently working on the 2006 plaque.
