My Story

Stone Working/Bronze Casting/Ceramic/Mixed Media

As a Sculptor my challenge is to release the life which exists within the stone by redefining its form. My work reflects the experiences of my life: embraced in traditional media of Bronze, Stone, Ceramic and Mixed Media, yet expressed in unorthodox form. The feel of the polished surface emulates the clinical nature of the surgical world: embodied tissue and muscle. I hope to provoke thought in the viewer of life’s contradictions; of trials and tribulations; of solid form and feeling: in hard stone there exists a soft curve. Through the medium of bronze, I express the female form of a tree (with female expression) relates to the reproduction and the ever changing cycle of life.
