Artist Statement

 

I believe that within us all there lies a strength that helps us to remain whole, intact and, above all, balanced. My wall pieces and sculptures are influenced by my own reflections of human struggles and the need to achieve balance. By stretching the legs and body, my figures depict the great lengths humans can be "stretched", yet still maintain the power to overcome the odds and achieve the near-impossible.

The birds are present to sing a song of encouragement. Like the birds, we too can rise above our frail appearance, draw strengths from within and remain perfectly balanced in mid-air.
