My work gravitates toward uplifting and inspirational themes, often ancient themes, leveraging the figure’s range to draw out transcendent truth and contemporary messages of hope and redemption. Within this context, my emphasis is on composition. Be it animals, skiers, or children, I am looking for the right posture, the most natural stance, the proper spacing, the perfect tension to make the work sculpturally compelling. I strive for conceptual consistency from the style and patina through to the presentation on the base.
As I see it, art is personal. It manifests from the deeper levels of an individual. Because faith is an integral part of my life, when I sculpt, this theme surfaces consistently. My work ranges in style from representational to abstract, but my passion is to express the figure as simply as possible to capture the essence of the pose and create space for the transcendent message to resonate with the viewer.
