ARTIST'S STATEMENT

I am primarily a figurative sculptor.  I love the shapes of all human forms and love the lines that develop in the skin over time.  A person's history is recorded on their body.  Their form tells the story.  I value the human narrative and find that the collective experience is recycled through each individual.  We share common events, milestones, emotional expressions, and are all subject to the process of aging.  Each individual designs their own vehicle (body) based on choices and life events.  I use archtypes and myth as vehicles in order to arrive at a specific destination.  I approach the selection of materials very carefully.  The material speak in concise terms, much like a poet's careful selection of words. Building forms in a 3-Dimentional environment, allows a viewer to literally exist with the piece, to commiserate within the art environment.
