Artist Statement

As a sculptor, I most enjoy creating forms that are massive and monolithic. For me, this is the best way to arrive at forms that are sensual, pleasing to the eye, and inviting to the touch. Generally, I start with an idea of a very basic shape, and only in the fluid process of creation does it become a human form.

My sculpture “Woman” was originally born of a wish to represent the strength of the female character, as coupled with a strong geometrical shape, the triangle. The walnut wood original has been reproduced in bronze and in hydrostone (plaster/marble).
