Artist Statement -

Sculpture offers me an opportunity to impose my aesthetic sense on the world around me, to give spontaneous expression to my feelings and ideas in a palpable three-dimensional form. The human figure is the natural embodiment for such feelings and ideas as they spring from the human heart and mind, and my figurative works seek to incarnate this. I interpret the reality I observe through the prism of what is pleasing to me. This is especially true for me when executing portraits, because portraits must be more than a mere reflection of a person's external appearance. To succeed, they must reveal the subject's underlying character and psyche, both of which have together molded the individual's recognizable features and personality.
