“As a lifelong student and teacher of fine arts, I might not be the likeliest suspect to create dinosaur sculptures and participate in dinosaur digs. However, the progression from fine artist to dinosaur sculptor and amateur paleontologist developed as I came to appreciate more and more the structural beauty of the earth’s earliest rulers. It is only natural that as my fascination with the anatomical forms of these magnificent dinosaurs grew, it would find expression in my creative works, such as my dinosaur sculptures for Maxilla & Mandible”
