Each of my clay sculptures has its own voice which speaks as I create it. As a figurative artist I'm fascinated by the female form and its impact on art and religion throughout history. Nature is my inspiration and my figures reflect sensuality, strength and connection to the earth.
I strive to create organic figures that exude natural elegance. I burnish and pit-fire my work so the smoke ages and mutes the colors with a patina that has a haunting suggestion of lost and forgotten eras. I refer to my work as "modern artifacts". This oxymoron reflects my contradictory intent of modern elegance achieved with primitive methods and various surface enrichments that connect the past to present.
