Sculptor, Architect, Poet, Author

Of more than thirty journals that publish my written work, you might like to visit these for recent postings: for memorial verse, "The Society of Classical Poets"; for diverse poetry, "Expansive Poetry Online"; for essay, "Expansive Poetry Online".  Later this year (2020 CJE, [common year of Christ JEsus]), Land of Sunlight and Stars: Afrikaans Verse in English Translation will be re-released along with engaging, educational podcasts.

Studio Projects

In architecture, private homes from my upcoming, domestic architecture treatise, The Beautiful American Home, are being constructed in Georgia and South Carolina; in statuary, various statuettes are being prepped for editions…to see this recent work, you might visit TheClassicalArtist website.  In literature, ten new books will be published this year through The Studio Press (a listing can be found, here); Classical Monuments and Architecture of Washington, D.C. continues to be a popular title, available both here, Amazon, and through The History Press.
