Vincent was born in California & spent his early years in Venezuela, Mexico and Texas. From an early age he found purpose and pleasure in the world of creativity. He began drawing and sculpting as a means of entertainment. As Vince grew older, his subject matter became refined & his techniques improved. While attending college at Southwest Texas State University (now Texas State University) to earn a History degree, he took a sculpture class with Roger Columbik. He learned the principles of bronze casting & basic 3-D design. Roger’s class opened up a new realm of sculpting for Vince: the entire process - from conceiving of the sculpture to carrying the piece through the casting & finishing process. 


Vince’s sculptural subject matter is widely varied. Due to his interest in nature, history, & science fiction, Vince creates pieces that range from life-size native Texas wildlife species to historical figures & fantasy creatures.  Vince intertwines the natural world with Science Fiction & Fantasy & poses many questions about future worlds.
