I love the three-dimensional eloquence of line, shape and form. Often beginningwith an elusive idea, I work intuitively through the tactile senses to refine and simplify, or expand the form, until it expresses the emotion or idea I am attempting to articulate.
My process is always one of discovery for myself and for the viewer of my artwork.
Abstraction from the human figure has been a consistent theme in my work and my particular interest is in artifacts and archetypal imagery, and it’s relevance to contemporary times.
