About the author

Past: Tolerated the U.S. educational system as far as a Bachelors degree. Favorite sports were skateboarding, windsurfing and pole vaulting. Worked on many jobs and projects, giving me a wide variety of skills and experiences.

Present: People call me a renaissance man. I still enjoy variety and being productive. Probably why artwork is one of my lasting activities. Snowboarding and hiking are my favorite ways to recreate with my amazing wife and sons.



  1. I adore our angel. Last week our 5-year-old neighbor was here, surrounded by adults. He was doing well, but he needed something to do. He was playing with our Nerf guns. His parents kept telling him not to shoot people or delicate things. My eyes lit on this angel. You can see how sturdy s/he is. I’m sure s/he volunteered for combat duty. I put her on the floor and had Logan aim at him. Perfect! Logan’s aim wasn’t very good, so he never hit the angel. His dad also took a shot, but he missed, too. I’ve decided little guardian angels have great power.

    1. Too funny! Shooting angels? Really? Nerf is so fun I’m sure all angels like to play. When the kids were younger many mobiles were used as targets and one has large open circles made for basketball hoops in motion! I love Calder’s work because it’s so playful, fun and basically indestructible! I have seen cats batting around original Calders many times! Enjoyment is the best reason to make and keep artwork. Glad to hear you are having fun with it.
