Studio Location: ICB Studio 280
My work is driven by my need to mold life out of material. I watch life unfold, and discover moments of beauty in an ordinary day. These moments inspire my work. The process is alchemy, where the ordinary stuff of life is transformed into something new. Wings can sprout on anyone and trees can have wheels. Art enables me to transform the mundane into something magical.
My work ranges from realistic to whimsical, from classical to abstract, from serious to playful. One series explores emerging vessels, as though they are breaking out of confining spaces. My sculptures are light in feeling.
I am primarily interested in line and form. While I use models in my work, I may not portray them in a realistic way. I want to capture their mood, spirit, and the essence of who they are. I am interested in the alchemy of the finishes as well.
The purpose of my art is to add beauty to the world, and to bring joy into people’s lives.
