As a sculptor, the only thing I find more inspiring then the human form is the spirit. Capturing motion and the pure essence of humanity is always my ultimate goal. I sculpt from line drawings based on gesture. The exaggerated lines are meant to invoke a sense of motion. Each piece represents either the power of the individual or the bond of people working together. Individuals are representations of line and form or pure strength of character. Groups or couples are meant to illustrate our ability to band together in order to accomplish seemingly impossible tasks, or the influence of emotional ties.
After years of experimentation with materials ranging from bronze and aluminum to wood and plaster, the use of hand carved resins on steel armature has made the appearance possible. The unexpected light weight of the pieces adds yet another element of conversational allure. Just as important as the sculptural qualities to each piece, is the finish. The bronzed effect is accomplished through a personally developed technique of layering several specific materials.
