"I am primarily interested in problem solving and pushing materials to perform in unexpected ways. The narrative created by the human form can simultaneously embody beauty, ugliness, pain, passion, strength, grace, emotion, etc.
It is the cornerstone of my inspiration. For two decades I have been sculpting and studying the human form in live model sessions, teaching figure sculpting for the last fourteen of them. A strong grasp of anatomy allows me to venture from classical sculpting to abstract and back again, depending on what the subject and theme calls for, or just how I feel that day.
Though I’ll always continue to explore new avenues, my underlying style is always present in handling of details texture and surface finishes."
