I graduated from Hickman High School in 1945 graduated from the University of Missouri in 1949, married, have four children, five grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. We have lived in Kansas City, Missouri and Dallas, Texas and returned to Columbia in 1967. I enrolled in grad school at the University of Missouri in 1975 and received a Master of Arts in 1979 and a Master of Fine Arts in 1982. I taught at Stephens College 10 years and William Woods University 2 years.
After retiring in 1989 I have devoted my time to sculpting. My work is cast in bronze. I have work in private collections and numerous public spaces; the campus of Central Methodist College, the M.K.T. Trail (Columbia, Missouri), Museum of Art & Archeology and Jesse Hall (University of Missouri), Bourgeoise Vineyards (Rocheport, Missouri), Capitol Building (Jefferson City, Missouri), Court House Square (Columbia Missouri) and City Hall (Boonville, Missouri).
I have recently completed a bust of George Washington commissioned by Washington, Missouri to be unveiled on May 15, 2004 in Washington, Missouri and I am sculpting a second bust of Walter Williams for the School of Journalism at the University of Missouri, to be completed June of 2004. In the past few years I have sculpted a bust of Edwin Hubble for the Hall of Famous Missourians at the Capitol Building in Jefferson City, Missouri; Walter Williams, founder of the School of Journalism at the University of Missouri for Boonville, Missouri; Governor Roger Wilson for Columbia, Missouri; Coach Norm Stewart for Columbia, Missouri; Stanley Ginn for the State Highway Patrol Museum in Jefferson City, Missouri and a new commission to sculpt a bust of Virginia Young for the Columbia Public Library. A second bust of Walter Williams is commissioned for the School of Journalism at the University of Missouri.
For the past two years, I have been sculpting figures for a monument to Lewis and Clark planned for the Capitol Complex in Jefferson City, Missouri. The fund raising is ongoing. We appeared on the Paul Pepper Show March 9, 2004 to exhibit some of the figures that have been finished.
