I draw my inspiration from nature and the human figure. I am fascinated by the grand and intimate in nature: ice and rock formations, stones and shards, bones and fossils. I am equally drawn to the human figure: its unity and complexity of form, its energy and grace in movement.
I am intrigued by the dualities ever present in life, two opposing entities which form a whole. While focusing on the flow of energy within each piece, I attempt to explore and reveal the dynamic tension between simplicity and complexity, movement and stasis, turmoil and tranquility, light and shadow.
To this end, I work in white clay, coiled and carved, bare and burnished, in order to highlight the contrast between light and shadow and reveal the purity, simplicity and tranquility inherent in each piece, as well as its complexity and vitality.
