As I evolve and add to the pages of my life, I find myself again igniting my passion for art. My aim is to capture the beautiful essence of the human body.

My pieces are of clay, a very easy and pliable material. I can add, subtract, carve, and shape to achieve my vision. I leave the raw texture in most of my pieces to show the material. I see, I sculpt, I push the clay, fast and slow, dancing with the energy of my model and myself. The body is a beautiful element. My goal is to capture the spirit, emotion, gesture, and positive and negative space inspired by the human form.
