Narrative

Much of my sculpture is figurative, and considers the narrative potential of how the physical body might wear its emotional experiences. Carving deeply into the clay, I develop a textured skin of imagery, fueled by a love of storytelling, anthropology and natural history. With a gentle, wry sense of humor, I look to elicit from the viewer of my work a slight startle, perhaps a smile, and then a feeling of recognition and of empathy. I offer my viewer inclusiveness, and the comfort of a shared experience.
