Sculpture Submission for Qatar-US 2021 Year of Culture Art Exchange Charleston

Sculpture has always been an integral part of my creative process as a means of exploration of form as it relates to drawing and painting. Although my career has been mostly as a draftsman an painter the earliest piece of artwork that I sold was a portrait bust cast in bronze while studying as a student in Italy.  The sculptures in progress indicated below can be completed and cast in bronze as a part of the Qatar-US Year of Culture 2021 Art Exchange. I also welcome the opportunity to  create a new commissioned piece.
