I fashion my sculptures from the inside out influenced by the creations of contemporary artists Tim Burton, and Beatrice Woods. I work deliberately, consciously employing both traditional and innovative techniques. However, my subconscious is the undisputed project manager. The joy of this work elevates my imagination and provides many opportunities for happy accident and grace to influence the finished project.
My imagination drives me in the creation of figurative sculptures of a whimsical, out-of-this-world existence. They go through a process of metamorphosis as they evolve from strictly human forms into the essence of the story they tell. I create my figures with high fire clay. Finishing them with colorful glazes, engobes, and underglazes bring their images to life. I form my figures based on stories in my mind. My intention is for my patrons to be inspired to create their own tales.
