In 2006, after more than 40 years of education, teaching and establishing a sculpture career throughout Philadelphia and the East Coast, Lloyd resigned all teaching commitments and relocated to Northern California, where he established a large working studio. He devotes his energy to developing a unique language of sculpture forms, which range in size from handheld to indoor-outdoor pieces to large monument-sized sculptures appropriate for private, corporate and civic venues.
