Artist Statement

"As a child, I was immersed in nature, and I developed a deep attachment to organic forms and shapes inspired by landscapes. This feeling comes through my work, sculptures which are derived from plant forms and water movement and other organic shapes. I playfully explore this vocabulary with varying degrees of realism and abstraction, rendering my visions in marble, bronze and other stone, to which I am drawn for their noble qualities. Untitled, Plant Abstraction is an example of a botanical and water-inspired language. The flow of the sea, the tapered edges of leaves, the curve of a petal are contrasted with areas of light, shadow, and movement. I play with movement and silence which I attempt to express with sensitivity and sensuality."
