As a lifelong sculptor, I continue to create from my studio in Hillsdale, Michigan. I began sculpting while still a child, soaking up his knowledge of the arts from my father, EvAngelos Frudakis, a sculptor, and my mother, Virginia, a painter. I was born in Bellows Falls, Vermont in 1953, but soon after my family moved to southern New Jersey. When I graduated from high school I discovered my love of sculpting at Duke University. After a year at the university I returned home where I worked as an apprentice to my father for several years before attending the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts on scholarship. After graduation, I opened my studio in New Jersey before moving to Hillsdale, MI in 1991. As a nationally recognized sculptor, I choose to work in a contemporary representational, yet classical mode, drawing inspiration from my Greek heritage and the genius of the Golden Age of Greek sculpting. Bronze figures, both human and animal, are my milieu. My work grace both private and public collections. While in Michigan I have created numerous monuments and sculptures depicting historical, mythological and spiritual figures throughout the Midwest. I am listed in both Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who in American Art. The National Sculpture Society and the National Academy of Design have both recognized my talent through top awards including the Gold Medal and the Daniel Chester French awards, respectively.
