Artist Statement

I have been interested in sculpture from my earliest memories.

Although I have a good understanding and appreciation of the wide range of modern art, the visual imagery and modest scale dominates my sculptural inspiration. I find that wax can be manipulated, modeled, and translated directly into bronze to encompass a wonderful range of expression, and the resulting bronze sculpture is especially satisfying to me. Most of my sculptures deal with the human image. Currently, most of my inspiration centers on varying perspectives of human performance.
