How extraordinary it is to be human, struggling to communicate, to live a meaningful life, albeit so briefly.
I search for the soul from whence all life comes. Myths, legends, stories and poems of individual human endeavors draw me in to search for that elusive spirit, the intangible made real. What is it that we see in an individual human action that changes the soul, thus, changes all people through the actions of this one being? What compelled that action that puts the individual at risk to change the whole community for the better.
As one can see body language is essential to my work and solid modeling allows me to incorporate the delicate gestures, subtle contours and complex structure of the body into a detailed rhythm of forms and gestures.
For me as an artist, I have moved perceptually from viewing and using the human form as a sculptural form to one of using the human being as a metaphor for spiritual interaction that changes the community, thus, the spirit as it were being bodily present in the world. I am drawn to record these events, these examples of this human spirit. It is this elusive spirit that drives all human beings to create. It is this life force that I pursue in using the human body to recreate the individual effort.
