Houses have always fascinated me. When I was ten I created houses in my younger sister’s sandbox. My mother’s avocation was a builder and her “buildathons” on our family home taught me about structure and design in a house. When I purchased my own home, an 1898 fourteen room Victorian, in 1979 I created my first clay model of that house. I have done many commissioned houses since.
Presently I am working on clay models of historically significant buildings in downtown Hartford, CT including the Memorial Arch, the Colt building, the traveler's tower and a chess set which incorporates several major historic downtown structures.
