Fire, bronze, earth and a breath of humanity: these are some of the elements that fascinate me about sculpture. I’ve drawn since before I can remember and picked up sculpture in high school. I love the simplicity and the potential of clay. It’s the excitement of creating something special that draws me.
Art is an expression of life: where we came from, who we are, what’s important to us and where we are going. I’m fascinated by the hopes and struggles that define us. My art reflects the use of the figure through the narrative of sculpture as a means of expressing these elemental qualities that make us human.
I want to create works that will provoke and inspire viewers for generations to come. This is why I love bronze. Like clay, my life will one day wear out, dry and crumble back into the earth. However, bronze will last for thousands of years echoing the voice of the artist. If a picture is worth a thousand words, what does a sculpture have to say?
