During his study he was awarded numerous accolades and as a student began teaching in 2013. Mitch is now Director of the Sculpture Program at The Florence Academy of Art. His works accommodate a multitude of priorities; namely, a deep commitment to observing and engaging a subject in order to produce works that contain some of the gravity and physicality of the natural world. He is keen to work in environments which are composed of striations of historical epochs that draw from both Eastern and Western cultural milieus. His work may be found in private collections throughout the United States, Europe, and the Middle East.
