Personal Quote: Ars longa, vita brevis, occasio praeceps, experimentum periculosum, iudicium difficile.

I know I've said that I'm a professional artist, and my work here perhaps doesn't represent that in many eyes. But I'm primarily a sculptor, and I do get paid for it. In my eyes, if you've made a regular (or semi-regular) paycheck off of it, you're a professional. I'm trying to develop my 2-D art skills (beyond drafting or lofting), so I've mostly posted my work here in an effort to see if it gets better over time. In the past I've done everything from theatrical makeup, to mixed-media figurative art sculpture, (read that as puppets and dolls- but not the children's plaything type- [these dolls sold for anywhere from $200 to $1000]) to Mardi Gras floats to grave markers. Wood carving, sculptural plasterwork, metal casting, tailoring and costuming, you name it. If it has anything to do with 3-D artwork, I've probably done a bit of it sometime in my past. When I'm not working on various artworks or craftworks, I'm using the degree I earned in yacht design to design boats.

Folks: If you like my work, please comment. If you don't like it, also comment, but tell me why, and what I can do to improve it. I'm always open to constructive criticism. How else can I improve? I know there are artists here who have so many comments that they can't read them all. I'm not one of them. I appreciate every comment and will respond to every one of them.
